Because I cannot resist re-posting this.
I think we can all relate to that moment when a sport we try [possibly reluctantly] becomes a hobby then translates into a passion.
Here is Susan’s story – smoker to ironman – posted by Caitlin of Healthy Tipping Point.
I’d be interested to hear what others’ impetus to begin a sport was.
My impetus to start running (or something) was being on the cusp of turning 50 and wondering what was next in my life. I felt I had to do something to keep my body in shape. I have yet to reach the “studley” level like some runners I know, but I keep working towards the goal. I may reach it when I’m 80 and come in first in my age group in a 5k.
