Usually the track at the gym is quiet. There might be 1 person walking it, but most of the time it's just me running those short laps around and around. However, yesterday the track was packed with seniors. I felt like I was intruding, but it is for everyone to use so I went ahead with my short run.
There was 1 guy moseying in a shiny green tracksuit, talking on his cell phone. I'm glad I was wearing my ipod! However, what stood out the most for me was the various postures; some were slouched over more, and others were very straight. I know as we age, we can become more slouched and seeing this group really made me aware of how I maintain my posture now could affect how it is later in life.
I know that I certainly straightened up as I ran.
