I didn’t discover running until I was in my 40s. And then, oh wow! I had no idea that it could be so wonderful. Maybe I should write about it more. :-)

I won’t tell you my time for the marathon I ran when I was 47, but I will tell you I was astonished and delighted that I could do it, that I could log a very respectable time, and that it didn’t kill me.

Running makes we feel so good!
