You can do this! Welcome to the team! I didn't start running until I was 54. You're never too old!

Betsy, I am just over 50 and I have run 8 5Ks and a half marathon in the last 3 years.
You CAN do it!:)
Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.
Great job! Keep it up!

I'm 50 (ish) myself! LOL. I started running after joining SparkPeople, and last year I ran two half marathons. I never would have believed myself capable before. C25k gave me such a boost of confidence. You can do this too, and then watch where running takes you!
Come join our main monthly thread.
I'm just getting started in running. C25K program to start off and then we'll see from there. I'm almost 50 and just getting around to this! I've seen quite a few stories about other runners starting off later like me so it gives me a bit of motivation.
I look forward to the journey in running and getting to know this team.
