I am 57 years young. I have finished 3 half marathons, and a full one in 2010. I have more half marathons on the horizon though gotta love that distance. Easier on this old body also.
I love to get out among all of the other walkers and runners. I also watch their techniques to see if I can ever get faster I am thinking maybe no but you never know.
Last one was fastest at walking with a 12:43 mile pace not bad for this old gal!
Walking and Running are my favorite forms of exercise and when I think of how to get away I just go walking or running and world stays behind not to mention a few bike rides in there and some DVD's to spice it up.
I have lost 100 pounds total in all my years and kept that off now to lose the last 35 and I will be a very very happy camper.
I am currently studying to become a personal trainer with a goal of also becoming a WalkLive Leader. You are never ever too old to walk!!!!
