Hells yeah! I ran my first marathon at 47, and it wasn’t some pretend effort that involves long stretches of walking or slow jogging.

At closer to 60 now than 50, I continue to learn and grow all the time. My mind is sharp and my body is not falling apart.

My profile pic? That’s current.

I know not everyone is the same, and some older folks struggle with health challenges. But 50 doesn’t mean finished!
