"In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, 'I have finished.' There is a lot of satisfaction in that." -Fred Lebow, New York City Marathon co-founder
Hi Betsy, 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!

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.
