I've been running for the past 25 years. I ran my first marathon at age 50 and have run 3 since then. I run 5K's, 10K's and half-marathons. I ran the Ogden Marathon in 2006 and finished in 4:35. I won Thrid Place in my age group.
Three of my daughters and I ran the Ogden Half Marathon. They did great and I was glad to just finish. I ran the Riverton 1/2 marathon the end of March and pulled my hamstring and then got bursitis so I wasn't able to train as much as I wanted to.
I have slowed down a lot the past 10 years so my goal now is to keep running slow and steady until I die. I also ride bikes and am as fast as my daughters.
We have now switched from Marathons to 1/2 marathons and Triathlons. Last year Leslie and I did the Desert Sharks Triathlon and Daybreak. I won first in my age group in both because there are not many people in my age group.
2010 Riverton Half Marathon 3rd in age group
Daybreak Triahtlon 2010 1st in age group
South Jordan Half Marathon 2010 1st in my age group
Riverton 10K 2010 1st in my age group

I'm married, have 8 kids (7 daughters and one son) and 28 grandkids. I have a great supportive husband. The grandsons and grand daughters are now tied at 14. I have 2 grand daughters married and one going on a mission to Australia.
Today was the first time in about a year that I was able to run 6 miles. I ran from my house up to 118th and then east to redwood and then from 118th to 126th and then up to my house. I was tired but not dead.
