No. I'm not as fit as I was. I never did jogging. Its just not something that interests me. Run and fun are two words that don't belong together.
I asked this question as I can no longer run!!

As I get older, I guess things start to stop working, or ache.

The only time I can remember running several times was about 4 years ago, while on my farm, and a snake was approaching my llamas or rather my llamas were heading towards a deadly snake (being curious they would have put their noses down to it and died). So i HAD to run in between and save them. AND then I could run.

Another time I ran was when a llama was birthing and something went wrong (wont explain here!) and I had to go back to the house to phone a vet urgently.

I have since tried running with my dogs but nothing seemed to work so I have to be content with a fast walk.

I am always amazed at how older people go on runs/marathons -i guess they are fitter than I am even though I walk every day.

Walking is one of the best and most enjoyable forms of exercise.I miss this activity ever so much,and I would say,more than any other thing which I used to be able to do before my illness got the better of me 8 years ago! I cannot even walk my beloved dogs,so it is a good thing that they get huge amounts of exercise playing with each other now,even in their older years!!! Walk and enjoy it for ME as well!!!

I only took up running about three years ago. I'm still not that fast, but I've improved a lot and it helps me sleep. I go about twice a week.

Yes but not very fast. My oldest recently told me how slow I am. I used to have time for running in the morning, and then they came.

Yes, well, um, I suppose so!
Haven't had to do that in a long time!

But I suppose if I had the Baskerville Hound after me, I wouldn't be seen for dust!
I don't run either. Since I hurt my back many years ago during an easy aerobic class, it's not good for me to run, (& it's actually not good for anyone to run, I found out from a health tv show, 2/3 months ago,) but I guests ALL the people I see running, didn't see the show! Um. Poor them! I do fast walking for 3 ks on a average of 5 days a week though, & have been doing so for 35 years with a friend, when my youngest child started school. If she can't come, I take my iPod, & listen to my music.
My back is ok now, but at the time of my accident, I was told, "No running" Evening dancing would flair the injury up again.

So now, I'd only be running for a bus!

Unfortunately,I am no longer able to run,or even walk without my cane anymore!! I never was hugely into running,but could do so when it was necessary,such as in an emergency!! As for walking,well....I used to walk to work and back home again every day for as many years as I can recall,but just over 8 years ago,my severe and painful arthritic disease finally got the better of me,and I cannot run at all,or even walk any distance.It is the walking which I muiss so very much as I found it to be a peaceful and relaxing form of general exercise,and I would do it EVERY day,even reading as I did so!!!
Yes, but I am now giving the tortoise an even chance of winning
No not me, I was rubbish at running even when I was young. But I can walk significant distances and this is how I prefer to get my exercise. I'll leave the running to the young and agile.
I love both running and the idea of running...like Forest Gump. I can't run for long anymore, though. I ran a lot during my HSC. It helped keep me level big time. I would really like to run more. But when?

Hahahahahahahahahaha! Perhaps if my dogs were in danger and I got an enormous adrenaline spike. . . . . .
