Hi, I’m JRoo’s grandma, Linda. I didn’t begin running until my early 30s, and I’m now 52. Some years I have run more than others, but always, I have been a slow runner. (Oh well. You know what the inspirational sticker says: “No matter how slow you go, you’re still lapping people on the couch.”) So I’m not very skilled or fast or anything that looks like a runner, but I love it. I wish I had started earlier, and truly, that is the biggest regret of my life. My favorite running quote is, “There will come a day when I can no longer run. Today is not that day.”
This is me, running my personal half marathon on my 50th birthday.
