I haven't posted on here for a very long time but this seems an appropriate time to do it again. I started running with C25K, having not run since school (45 years previously), back in January 2012. I graduated on my 62nd birthday. Yesterday was my 65th birthday. I'm still running!
I've never stopped running. I've done the Great Yorkshire Run twice. In 2013 and again in 2014 I clocked a yearly total of over 800K (I was aiming for 1000K). I've never had an injury, although I did have a health scare earlier this year (a small stroke). But I'm still running, and the hospital are entirely happy with that. I'm still aiming for 1000K this year, intend to do the Great Yorkshire Run again and am working towards a half-marathon distance, and perhaps an actual HM.
So the message from this new pensioner is that age is just a number, it certainly isn't any barrier to running, and I intend to keep on running until the day I physically can't do it any more. I love it. Must stop now, gotta go running. Enjoy!
