Simple Math 

How do you run faster as you get older? Simple math really. Hard Work + Never Quit = Payoff.

There are a lot of great things about this story but the simplicity of just running without the gym membership or all the fancy doodads is what gets me. I've never understood why more people don't run especially when there is almost zero barrier to entry. I understand why the less affluent aren't as healthy as the more affluent. Cheap, empty calories versus expensive fruits and vegetables, access to health care, longer working hours, shift work, longer commutes all lead up to a less healthy lifestyle. Yet the answer is right in front of our eyes and so few of us take the time to see it. Running isn't like other sports with registration fees, expensive specialized equipment or access to highfalutin facilities. You just put on a pair of shoes (even the cheapest will do) and go. Any time, day or night. As far as you want, as fast as you want.

Ask Memo. Memo knows.
