Slow Running

Being in my 70's, I have been running for over 30 years. The problem is I have gone from an 8 min per mile training pace to a 11-12 min mile training pace and my race times are very very slow---but, I still enjoy it! Use to tell the girls that if they catch me, they can have me. Now I tell them if they want to wait around at the finish line, they can still have me.

You are what I aspire to be, I really hope to still be running into my 70s and beyond and it's hearing your story and others like it that give me hope and the determination to keep running! I take my hat off to you and....well done. A hug from a fellow runner

Your stats are still admirable - I'm 31 now & just been for 1 1/2 run which took me about 15 mins. You would beat me easily especially over a longer distance - I doubt many seventy year olds can say that!

Looks like I'm going to have to try much harder if I'm going to be like you when I'm your age!

congrats on being in such good health!
