It’s the perfect time for us to take a look at the habits and attitudes of runners across the Under Armour. You’re never too “old” to start; you’re always too young to stop! My mother, now 90, represents the front of a wave of older women runners who didn’t have a lot of opportunity to participate in sports before the passage of Title IX in 1972. This 57-Year-Old Proves It’s Never Too Late to Start Running Expand Your Horizons.

St. Claire knows what it is like to juggle a busy life and how hard it can be to make time to go on a run or. With age, we become increasingly prone to such ‘degenerative diseases’ as heart disease, cancer, hypertension, diabetes and bowel diseases.

But most of these are preventable to some degree, with exercise – and particularly endurance exercise –playing a significant role. Being “too old to run” is just an excuse and preventing you from trying and achieving great things. Even if you are afraid to start, age shouldn’t be the reason! When my dad started running at the age of 56 he told me he was too old to run properly. Started running at 71 by: Carole After being told I was pre diabetic I decided to start running with my GPs approval.

After about 4 months gradually building distance I have now managed 6 miles (don’t do kilometres!) Really enjoy the running, I live in the countryside so I enjoy the scenery as well.

  • I’m currently 25. I needed to hear this badly. All the comparison with people younger than me having done and experienced WAY more than me is killer

  • I turn 25 this year im finally graduating college, I had a neck injury that left me with chronic stress but im doing prp injections to fix it, that had been the thing always holding me back my bad health but i belive this year im fibally making a breakthu.��

  • I haven’t seen any videos on guys your age. Love your content but it would be nice to see something for the 40+ too. You may have something out already but not sure. I follow you on just about every platform and get your texts everyday. Respect

  • Actually I am 12 years old. So, what are you saying is that it’s more difficult for me to learn a language than for a 50s.? I can’t believe it. This video is against young people or kid like me. It means what exactly? Someone, could, please, I don’t know,say something…

  • I’m 24 years old, going on 25 in 3 months. I was in a horrible spot, I realized I had a big problem when I was 13,000 dollars in debt. I’m going to be out of debt next month which is a blessing. I also had and still have mental health/emotional issues which I’m dealing with in the most proper way I know, therapy, good life habits, good friends. Life’s been a lot better but it wasn’t easy to admit or acknowledge the issues I truly had holding me back.

    It’s never too late or too soon to get your life on track, and it’s never worth while looking back at your past mistakes. All that matters is making your life the best it can be and being the best person you can be.

  • Turning 19 this week. I saved 10,000eur when I was 18, but I spent them by buying assets for myself (car, bike etc) and got into trading with the help of my best friend. We had lost 4k from trading and got broke. Luckily, I did not call it quits and began studying the market (Forex) and invented a new strategy that works really good. We compiled the strategy into an indicator and now we’re getting back on track. Our intention now is to release this to the people so that they could benefit from this too, only thing is they should first be taught about how to manage their money in the first place and how to place a trade, so even when you lose, you lose just 1% and when you win, you win 2% to 3% of your account balance. (Ex: 10,000eur, 100 risk, 200 300 reward). If y’all interested, check our site @ aafxsco.com! Thanks!

  • Gary, thank you for sharing this piece of content. QUESTION: Regarding when you say “taste” can you please elaborate on what your opinion is on tasting a bunch of different things?

  • Every time i see ‘featuring’…You know it’s a cookie cutter beat for the masses.
    Whoever is slaying (not in a good way) the tune always sounds the same. MTV Drum n base right here!
    Making DnB palatable to make money is a crime against drum and base!

  • I am intermediate in english conversation and just trying to speak american accent if someone are there who wants to learn american accent or just learning how to communicate in english and searching an english speaking partner please leave your email id i will connect to you and we can learn english together with american accent…..

  • Don’t forget to remind yourself that direction is more important than speed! In your 20s you should focus on figuring out what fulfills you, building good work ethic, living below your means and educating yourself with financial knowledge!!

  • Thanks Alisha for your advices
    I am my forties and French people
    But I don’t have accent when I speak writings and reading are alright speak and listen are my matters

  • I share a similar story as a questionaire! I am now 28, going to turn 29 in another 5 months. I struggled and graduated with electrical engineering, worked in a call center happily for a year. Then, I took courses in programming and joined IT, worked for 1.5 years. I quit and then enrolled in data science masters, struggling in my masters. Now, I feel I am starting all over again. I am from India. Yes, the advice is good-The difficulty in starting out again is that you feel you have compromised your future and that even if you work hard now, you can have only an inferior future. Of course, we must stop dwelling in the past.

  • Just turned 24 and feel very behind in life, I want to pursue music and social media but everyone around me is judging me and saying no. It’s so hard sometimes.

  • I’m 21 almost 22 I’ve stop going to college before but now I want to go back but I’m embarrassed and doesn’t have much self confidence

  • Man.. I am thankful to watch this video.. I am 25, and fucking unemployed since 2017.. that is how stupid and awful person I am. I am not really lazy, I am just shackled by my fear towards other people, yeah, I am a pussy, I can’t even order a food to McDonald, and can’t even pick up a ringing phone that is why I got fired on my last job. Now after watching this video… I know it is not too late to start over again.

  • These days go too fast
    For me to limit
    All my decisions, yeah…

    Created the bugs
    How I am living
    Is by my own cause

    Want to feel
    But I can’t lose sight
    Of what I came here to show myself
    But I hold back

    I know what’s real
    I know what’s right
    But I can’t help thinking
    I’ll miss you ’till my time

    I never feel too old for this
    ‘Cause something in my soul says I’m not over this
    I’m gonna let life go for me
    And when it’s time to go let it take over me
    I never feel too old for this
    Cause something in my soul says I’m not over this
    I’m gonna let life go for me
    And follow my resolve to focus on the beat
    I’ll never ever leave
    These days go too fast
    For me to limit
    All my decisions, yeah…

    I gave it a chance
    But I’m beginning
    To lose my vision

    Want to feel
    But I can’t lose sight
    Of what I came here to show myself
    But I hold back

    I know what’s real
    I know what’s right
    But I can’t help thinking
    I’ll miss you ’till my time
    I got to focus on the speed…

    Want to feel
    But I can’t lose sight
    Of what I came to assure myself
    But I hold back

    I know what’s real
    I know what’s right
    But I can’t help thinking
    I’ll miss you till my time

  • I am intermediate in english conversation and just trying to speak american accent if someone are there who wants to learn american accent or just learning how to communicate in english and searching an english speaking partner please leave your email id i will connect to you and we can learn english together with american accent…..

  • Yeah all he said make sense but i fell like nothing is gonna change for me. I hear this motivational crap for 5 years a least but im still the way I was. I feel like the only way for people like me is just exist or not. I tried a lot o things but i always return to this state of being nothing.

  • Sorry, but I don’t get the idea of the video. You speak upper intermediate here and no one who has just started learning English is going to understand you. Speak easier if you want to make a video to inspire people who has just started learning English. Because this video would demotivate beginners and that’s all. At least add subtitles. You are cute but the video is extremely weird

  • With the kpop industry or the music industry in general.. this insecurity of “age” or “I’m too late ” is 10 times more rough and strong. I’ve been feeling this for a long time now…and at times it makes me stop. Bt then I somehow get up and continue.
    Why does the music industry especially kpop, expect teenagers as younger as 12 or 14 audition and get in as trainees and then debut at around 20 or more.
    What about the ones who like me, start at 21. Its fucking depressing sometimes, to be so young, yet feel so old when it comes to thinking about this industry

  • Than older you become, than it’s getting harder to learn Language, because the brain is getting less flexible to learn something new, and memory is getting worse. Young people and children learning language much easier than old people.

  • It so true you can’t dwell on the past, it’ll keep you from moving forward! I just turned 25 and I was feeling the same way, I literally had to make this verse my wallpaper on my phone. “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭ 43:18-19‬ ‭ESV‬‬

  • Alright, this is my 2 cents. If you’re 25 and you’re hard working and able-bodied. There are TONS of high paying trades to get in to. I’m a lineman and started when I was 24. No degree. The pay STARTING for a groundsman where I work when I started was $21.36/hr (now it’s $23/hr). Only two years later I’m making $33/hr. You get plenty of overtime too which put my annual pay to $90,000 last year at 26 years old. A topped out lineman where I work makes $44/hr with overtime. Every topped out lineman here easily makes $115,000 a year or more. The line industry is looking for people constantly. It’s not easy work, but it’s rewarding work. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to make good money at a young age.

  • I needed that inspiration. I put a lot of pressure on myself to grow my channels. I’m 25 but it’s good to know to that time is on my side.

  • How to use where? For example, a few years ago, when demand for recycled paper products dropped, recyclers all over the country WHERE warehousing stacks of cardboards, waiting for the price to turn around. Why use WHERE, does it carry any meaning?

  • I completely agree. I used to teach at an adults only English academy and had some students in their 50s and even 60s! Age shouldn’t prevent you from trying to learn. If you study hard, you can do it no matter how old you are ��✊��

  • Homeless at 18 met my husband, we both lived poor working for pennies (less than mcdonald employees) living in a mouse infested small basement apartment and made the best if it, then we both got careers worked ourselves to death, and again became homeless with our baby at no fault of ours, and now we both own a a used old comfortable house, cars and a well furnitured house, with nice stuff, and we only do what we love, I am a writer with steady writing success working part-time making money in different ways including off my writing life, my husband is a top employee doing what he loves and keep getting raises. We also have a daughter with $60,000 scholarship and lives in a dorm and have two sources of her own income and a boyfriend that does to and both is doing what they love and are very happy.. They were raised well. I told my daughter my mistakes and most she didn’t do, thank GOD.

  • oh my god wow.
    first drop hit me so hart i literally dropped the fork while eating. not bullshittin.
    god damn this is an instant favorite

  • But gary what do i actually do? I have a gun and im awaiting instructions gary. PLEASE BE VERY CLEAR ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO GARY!

  • 25 yr olds lol. Young af. I started over as in sold a business, reinvented myself or had a new side hustle at 25, 29, 33. Now at almost 37 I’m heading down a new path with a particular venture. I also became an expat entrepreneur in another country. I’m sure there will be many other evolutions between now and 47. Don’t limit yourself or think you must follow blueprints. There are none.

  • Got kicked out of college, graduated way behind my peers. Failed to get into my dream company twice despite having great work experience. Failed to pass my ethics exam. Despite all that can’t believe I’m still on the grind. Glad I found this vid!

  • Turned 24. I am always miserable seeing people younger than me achieving things that i couldn’t even fathom like Running successful businesses, successful in social media platforms, being extremely good at ANYTHING. And here i am.

    I really needed this video. Thank You.

  • Could you please ask Gary to prepare a video on “Power of the word FUCKING”. I am unable to understand as to why Gary uses this word FUCKING so much.

  • I told myself at this age (24) I was going to sacrifice myself for 6 years (until 30) in order for me to get to where I want to be! I have my own business, i’m earning good money, I just need to invest it. Right now, I need to continue running game and learning how to play. In this world, is all about who can retire faster. I want to be 40 years old with a house, car and enough money to travel. That’s my goal. I’m not worried about finding a girl or a wife right now. That shit can wait. Even if it doesn’t happen then I will be fine. My parents aren’t pushing me to get married, but they are pushing me to get a house and get this money! Like I said I told myself by 30 i have to set.

  • This reminds me a lot of the book, “Who Moved My Cheese?” By Spencer Johnson. Some people dwell on losing their cheese and don’t realize there is new cheese to be found.

  • The point I’m taking away from this video: change your mindset. Don’t think “fuck I’m 24 it’s too late” instead think “dude I’m 24! I got all this time to find my path”

  • Everyone has their own fcking timeline. Focus on yours and stop comparing. Just do what works for you and don’t look back. Comparison is a thief of joy��
