Running Through Time: How Life Rhythms Foster Identity Permanence

This research proposes a Rhythmic Experiences Framework inspired by Lefebvre’s (2004) theory. While studying third-age runners, the authors describe how consumption practices’ properties of place, time, and energy foster life rhythm experiences (of eurhythmia and arrhythmia), which through time and repetition, in linear and cyclical processes, may reinforce identity projects.
