Thus I think I should hang up my running shoes.

No need hang up running shoes lah. To each, his/her own. Unless you're aiming to be an elite. Otherwise, doesn't matter much actually. Structured or not, it's just the means to justify your ends be it to keep bettering your own PB or just to be able to complete each race comfortably. Just as long as it doesn't make running too much of a chore until it takes the fun away.

Well said Jerry! 👏🏻👏🏻

Fact is most of us are not aiming to be running elites... so it is critical that we never lose the fun element and continue to enjoy ourselves so that running is kept sustainable. 

While it is good to keep improving, sometimes it’s good to remind ourselves why we started running in the first place so that running do not become another source of stress.

Yeah man. Our daily life and work are already stressful enough. If the activity which is meant for me to de-stress starts becoming stressful,  then i'll probably be booking myself into IMH soon....

Think all the elite marathon runners worked hard to get to where they are now. If any of us put in on average 100-160 miles per week, did cross training and core work out, think many can expect to do sub 3s. Would think 40-60 miles a week is about a 4-6 hour marathon time  for the majority of us.

I only started running at 41 and I feel there is still so much more to achieve. For you young chaps, enjoy the journey. It's a long one and you'd want to make the best out of it.

They run for prize money. We run for fun leh.  Unless of course you are focusing on becoming an elite?

For us mere mortals, running is not competitive. It's a lifestyle, and races are only meant to spice up our hobbies a bit. I intend to keep running beyond 90....if i live that long.
