I didn't become active until my early 30s. After my dad passed from smoking-related cancer in the mid 1980s, I quit smoking and started swimming, as I always loved the water. That activity led me to underwater hockey, which I have played since 1991. I compete in local, regional, and national tournaments, and have even been to a world competition.

I am also a runner and a RRCA Certified running coach (feel free to ask me questions). I have completed 2 marathons, 14 half marathons, a couple of trail races, some 10 milers, some 10Ks, and so many 5Ks that I stopped keeping count.

If I could send a message to people it would be that you are never too old to change your lifestyle, and to not expect huge changes in a short amount of time. It is a constant work in progress with backslides and progressions. Make constant, small changes and keep learning about health and fitness.
