Love inspirational stories - thanks for posting. I started running at 40 and plan on going until I can't anymore.

THANKS - easy to get a little down alway running with and comparing myself to people 1/2 to 3/4 of my age, but it's good to know that even starting running at 50ish, it's better late than never and that I can do this too!
