    I can actually sprint! I'll be 67 this year, but I can sprint fast enough to intimidate the runaway dog into submission so that I can actually catch him.:)

    I never punish the little monster, though. I just pick him up, turn him around to face the house, tap his butt, and away he streaks going back home! It's all a game for him, I guess. Me, too.:o

    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    Pfft! I routinely do @ 6 mile training runs. I do agree with you though, most marathoners miss a run due to injury. I love running and feel cheated when I can't run. Injuries are terrible for a runner because the time spent recovering and post recovery training doubles to get back to pre-injury running form.:mad:

    running taxes the CNS too much and thats why runners get hurt all the damm time.

    53 and still going. 26 years of military life has me doing many work-a-rounds for chronic injuries-(neck-back-knees-ankles), aside from that, "pain is just weakness leaving the body.";)

    Meh, working on the pull ups, but until recently I haven't seen a practical use for them in real life. Now I see some of the mud runs are getting really popular and I might have to get the shoulders back in the game if I plan on running these.

    I can still lift a fork to my mouth so I got lifting covered.

    Running though takes a real man. See you on the track Shrek!:D

    I did my running when I was young and stupid. Getting smoked was somthing I prided myself on.

    pull ups are practical. You ever need to climb out of somthing and cant do em.....we sucks to be you.

    I may be shrek but tell you what. Both of us load up a prowler sled with 100 lbs of weight and have a sprint contest.... or even easier, lets use weighted vests..make it easy and only load em to 40 lbs.

    I bet you crumble way before I do.
