Start Out...and Keep Going
Mon, July 14, 2014 | link
I recently got the chance to meet Beth, a wonderful woman who ran her first full marathon when she was 56. Shortly
after that, she suffered some health problems -- but she searched until she found a doctor who wanted to solve her problems,
not just keep her alive! She ran her second full marathon when she was 60 and is a legacy runner for the San Diego Rock 'n
Roll Full (she has run every year since it began).
Beth has now run 53 full marathons -- just couldn't even tell me
how many halves "Oh, I just can't keep track of all those."
And she is 81.
amazing, but she is NO MORE AMAZING than any of our Solemates.
You, too, made a brave decision to start
running, and as long as you continue to put one foot in front of the other, you are just as brave, just as committed, just
Most of you know that I have a goal of running as many halves as I am years old (right now, I'm at 37
of 52), but I realized yesterday that I have another aspiration: I would love it if, 30 years from now, some young 52-year-old
whippersnapper would come up to me and ask to be in a picture with me while waiting for a race to start.
ya what: Let's make it a group shot. We've all started out; let's keep it going. At peace with our pace...for years
Love you all -- and we'll see you Saturday.
Many of our members joined Sole to Soul to
train for their first 1/2 marathon. Most of us never thought that running 13.1 miles was even possible when we first
started training but, together, we learned that we could do it.
Our running motto is "At Peace With My Pace." I believe
that with encouragement and support, you can cross the finish line -- still upright, smiling and ready to sign up for another
can do this, too; please email me with questions!
