Too Old to Run?

A friend was surprised I still run.

Wow that is mighty impressive. It does make you wonder, say you have one person who has ran all their life and someone else who takes it up at say 50 and all things being equal, would they ever reach a standard say 5 years down the line where they were equally good ?

This guy was 49 and told he would never walk without crutches again. If he can do it you can too

Wow that youtube story was truly inspiring! I started yoga again last week and now feel like I've been on a rack I'm so stretched. Definitely got to keep it up because it strengthens and exercises everything so well without the impact. There's a great youtube clip of a 93 year old who still teaches yoga in the US. Her core strength is amazing

Just read about the TR24 event on another thread and it sounds brilliant. I love trail running and wondered if any other like-minded over 50's fancied making a team for this event. Who out there is crazy enough and like-minded? Equally if there is a team out there needing another member let me know!
