Yup, you read it right. A study by Stanford University was released August 11, 2008 in the Archives of Internal Medicine and connects running to increased longevity.
The study has been in the news recently, but if you missed it try this link: Running Improves Disability And Life Span In Older People
Just another reason to keep running for a long time.
As for my current running. Well, a new baby in the house has cut into free-time a lot. It has been hard to get runs in and I am still seeing a Chiro for my knee. I am getting swimming in 2-3 times a week to help the knee recover.
I will find more time and the knee will get better, allowing me to keep on track for 1000km this year.
