Best Running Tips Newsletter, Issue #014 -- Do You Dare to Take the Test?


April 24, 2009

Welcome to the Best Running Tips Newsletter !

I thought it was time for something a little bit different. Let's all do a test!

It is called the Real Age Test.

You may have heard about it. You answer a list of questions about your diet and exercise habits and then get provided with a real age, which represents your physical age.

When your Real Age is lower or equal to your actual age, you are on the right track, you are living healthy.
When your Real Age is higher than your actual age, it can be quite confronting. You obviously has some work to do. Your body is basically older than what you are.

My work colleague did the test. He is 30 years old. Little overweight. Out of shape. Doesn't always eat healthy. Drinks a few cans of soft drink during work hours and some more at home.

Drinks quite a bit of alcohol in the weekend. His Real Age shocked him. He was 37 years old according to the test.That's seven years more than what he is supposed to be. I am almost four years older than he is, but my body is ten years younger!

The great thing about the test was that it got him to start making changes. He has decreased his intake of soft drinks. He does not always take the lifts anymore when he needs to go to another floor in the building. He has made changes to his diet.

It is great to see that this test result has swung him into action. After years of knowing that he was not on the right track, this test has given him that extra push in the back that he needed.


Whatever your result is, positive or negative, take the test and swing into action!

That was it for now. A parting thought for today:

"In this world of hard work, there are few people willing to work hard"

Speak to you soon. Make sure to check out that test.

In the meanwhile, visit my site often and happy running !
