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

"We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves...The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving for freedom."

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!

Having just set a marathon PR at age 47 of 4:14 (ran my first marathon 12 years ago) with plans to lower it further I am always in search of inspiring Masters runners stories. Below is a link to some! emoticon
