Thanks for sharing. I can relate to many of the things you said. I'm the same age as when you started running and I just started running and have had many of the same thoughts. I'm waiting for someone to call my bluff, that I'm not really a runner. But my time keeps getting better and I'm still doing it. So maybe I am a runner!

Wow, thank you so much for sharing your story. I have always wished I could run and now because of you I will start. You look awesome!!!

I'm so inspired by your story. I am 47 and a beginner at running. I'm lovin' it.

Very inspiring! I've often thought about running but I haven't because I felt that people would make fun of a fat person trying to run. We have a trail near my house but so many people walk and bike it. Any suggestions?

So glad you shared this! I am 49 and took my first 1 mile jog/walk yesterday that was mostly WALK. :) Thank you for your encouragement, you look wonderful and that smile of yours is my "I can do it!!!"

Your story is so inspiring - and also a good lesson that 'age' is a state of mind. Your advice to take it step by step and build up endurance makes sense - thanks for sharing
