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."

I love inspiring stories! I started running at age 55.

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!
