I want to run a marathon. Sounds crazy to my kids, but people over 50 do run. I have watched many Los Angeles Marathon’s, my son ran it twice, as a teenager. So, I know about the faces you see passing you and the family members cheering on all of these runner’s, as we sit on the streets of LA.In the next city over, there is a store a little different then the big sporting goods store. It is called “Play it again Sports”. They sale your gently used sport equipment. I found this Lateral Thigh Stepper. You can see the price tag still on it. Yes, my $20 going towards my exercise goals again. This is really fun. I wasn’t sure about it at first. I really want to do step’s. This feels like skating. You go side to side. It does give you that tingle in you trunk.
I haven’t decided if it’s easier to wear shoes or not. I started off with just a few minutes every day. Now I find myself jumping on to practice my balance. I’m starting to feel it working. I have the television on, those food commercial’s make me walk a little faster.
It won’t be a hanger for clothes like most exercise equipment ends up doing. It is used so, I really don’t know how many miles it has on it. Oh yea, the counter for step’s is broken. I know, I always find the broken stuff. It’s o.k. because I’m a little broken too. So, together we will make a good team.
One can only hope to meet their goals at any age. Los Angeles Marathon, I’m coming for you.
