Congratulations! That's so encouraging. Thanks for posting. I'm 64 too, but only for another 10 days! Then I change category in Parkrun. My current category is set very kindly, I found, and as a slow runner, I compared quite favourably with those youthful gazelles. Keep running!
Fantastic achievement! It's hard enough even without the health problems you've had. Good to see another one chalked up for us oldies too! Happy running 🏃🏃♂️🏃♀️😊😊😊
So happy for you. Congratulations ⭐️⭐️⭐️

What an amazing achievement, you should be very proud of yourself 👏🏻
That is so inspirational, hats off to you. I’m a 58 year old non-runner that’s in W4. I had cancer a couple of years ago that took away a kidney, then Sepsis, and I have no meeting abdominal muscles as a result of that. So I worried about if I could manage it as it gets harder along the journey. But I’m going to think of you each time I run, as you’re achievement is amazing. Well done.
030961,you have been through the mill,but you can do it.Take it nice and easy and get the breathing right. The biggest help to me was a GP referral to the local gym for stroke rehab.So i had 5 months in the gym before i started runnig.Trust the programme,it really builds your stamina.I wish you good luck and good health
What a fantastic achievement and inspiration for others. Very well done and respect to you. 👏👏👏 Keep well and keep running.

Carlo so well, really well, done. Stroke evokes so much change to have to overcome. What a fellow survivor.
Amazing! Well done to you.
I'm feeling a bit off today, tired and lethargic and a few niggly worried about close family going through a hard situation at the moment which I'm unable to do anything to help except just listen.
Anyway your post has given me the push I need to get off the couch and join my running group for their Sunday run.
Hats off to you for your determination and resilience and continued good running to you.
Congratulations! Total superstar 💥
This is amazing - well done 🎉
Congratulations you have done so well. You have done so well and you are a real inspiration to others. Well done!
Your post obviously has hit a nerve with over 100 replies!!! I can only echo what everyone else has said- you are an inspiration to all of us. Such an achievement. I was feeling very discouraged as I couldn’t finish my 2nd consolidation run last week- so discouraged that O didn’t even try for my 3rd run- 1st time I have missed a run through the program. Your post was just what I needed to kick my backside into gear- I will be out running and thinking of you tomorrow morning. Thank you and congrats!!!!
Absolutely amazing achievement! Well done... what an inspiring person you are! x
