Begin running after age of 50?

I'm interested in hearing from people who took up running after the age of 50.

I'm hoping to write an article for an over 50s audience and would love to talk to people about their motivation, etc.

Email me if you're interested!

    Johnny - thanks for the tip, had forgotten about the mature thread.

  • i started  running in Febrary this year started with the Couch to 5k and never looked back just turned 59 last week
  • I'm 54 and started running in March, did my first 10k in 59 minutes 34 seconds in October and really enjoying it - highly instrumental in me losing over 3 stone this year too!
