Interview for Monica Bruno – Too late to start running?

February 5, 2016
too old to run?

too old to run?I’ve been a member of the Have Your Cupcake (HYC) group for about six months now and have made some wonderful blogging friends.  They are women who are taking life with both hands, at any age and doing something that has been a dream for some time.

This week, I was honoured to be interviewed by a member of HYC,  Monica Bruno.  Monica is a busy mum (mother of twins), is a published author of Rachel’s Folly a suspense novel, a yogi and is also a fellow runner.

Monica wanted to interview me because of my running and the fact that I didn’t start until almost 50.

It was a pleasure being interviewed as I love getting the message out there that:

'age should not define you or want you want to do'.Click To Tweet

I would love you to read my interview with Monica, get to know me a little more and also check out her blog and book.  Just click on the link below…..I’d love to hear your feedback or what you are doing to keep healthy and happy.

    Wow! Well done Sue! You look to be in great shape. I ran competitively from age 8 until my early forties, but I’ve had to find other things to do now that the cartilage in one knee is shot. :-(. I love the sensation of running, and I still sneak a run in now and then. My grandfather ran all the way into his 80s! He’s 97 now, and still goes to there gym 4 days a week. Keep on keeping on! xx

      Hi Lisa! Thank you for the compliment. It must be hard as a long term runner to have to cut back because of injury. I love hearing about older people who are still keeping fit and healthy! Way to go Grandfather! Have a lovely day and thank you for stopping by.

    Love this post, and it totally blows my whole theory that now that I’ve reached 50 I can’t run anymore!
    Love the idea of the Saturday sisters, I need to find some here in LA!

      I’m so pleased you enjoyed the post Rosemond and yes I’m sorry to say your theory is blown. It is much easier exercising with others so get a couple of friends together and go for a walk. Have a great week!

    This is a great interview, it sounds like you’re really passionate about running and introducing others to it, at any age. Good luck with running and all your running-related endeavours – wishing you every success. I’m a some-times runner, not running at the moment, but posts like these keep me interested and inspired to get back into it when I can 🙂

      Hi Robyn, thank you for stopping by to comment and I’m pleased that you enjoyed the interview. I do enjoy running but I also like to mix it up with PT sessions and yoga or even going for a walk. It is all about balance and moving that is the main thing. Have a lovely day!
