In all things moderation

As a former marathoner I read with great interest an article in the StarTribune, "A growing body of research suggests excessive running can be dangerous".  Seems that the sage advise, "in all things moderation" still rings true.

In addition to the concerns about overexercising the author also pointed out that for every person who endangers their health with extreme exercise there are 19 people not getting enough exercise. With age I have become a great believer in the value of walking and cross training.

Recently I had the "ultimate"week of cross training, which included many walks, yoga, cycling, boot hockey, running and ultimate frisbee.  Truth be told, I may have overdone it just a bit. Lots of fun however!
