It does not get any easier. You just get faster.
In 2012 when I turned 50 I decided to get fit and start running and my journey has been so much fun. Amazing races, awesome people and unfortunately untimely injuries, but I would not change anything. I guess the highest point was my first Marathon back in May 2013 when I ran it in 3:27 which was 3 minutes under my goal and I was delighted. This brings me to my lowest point which was in July 2013 when I fell on a race and hurt my ankle which is still not 100% but as the say "every cloud has a silver lining" well, in this case, it was a black lining made of beautiful sleek Carbon Fibre :-)
In November 2014 I started cycling for the first time in a lot of years and just like with running it feels very natural and in fact, I love it more than I ever did running. I Rode 7300 miles in my first year and in January 2016 I rode 1400 miles so it's fair to say I am hooked. My total mileage for 2016 was 12,200.
I ride Canyon Bicycles and am very happy with them. Please feel free to contact me for any advice.
