I hope that DRB13_1 doesn't mind me sharing her Blog, but I LOVED this story!!
Never, Ever let ANYONE Tell You that You Are "Too Old" to change Your Lifestyle!!
"I Know One Of These Days They'll Probably Pick Me Up Out Of The Road. But That's Alright. It's Better Than Quitting" Margaret Hagerty - Marathoner
Watch the video:
Kiawah, SC is the destination for the 81st and possibly final marathon Margaret Hagerty plans to run.
At 64, her doctor told her to quit smoking and get out and move it.
The first day, she only ran the length of two houses.
At 66, she ran her first marathon in Greensboro, NC. She set a state record for her age group.
In 2005, she made the Guinness Book of World Records for being the oldest person to complete a marathon on each of the seven continents, at age 81 years, 101 days.
In 2008, she became the oldest person to run the Great Wall of China (in a 10K event, see link below).
NOW, what’s your excuse?

One night I had a dream . . .
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Across the sky flashed scenes from my life!
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;
one belonged to me, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back.
I noticed that at some times along the path there was only one set
of footprints. At other times, there was one set of footprints or long
gouges and irregular lines in the sand.
I also noticed that this happened at the very lowest and saddest
times in my life.
This bothered me, and I questioned the Lord . . .
"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you would walk with me all the way. I have noticed
that during my most troubled times, you were not with me".
The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and would
never, ever leave you during your times of trial and suffering".
"When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you. And that long groove in the sand is when I dragged you, kicking and screaming, like a spoiled brat".
