Thanks for sharing. I have always had a dream that I would be back to running regularly (but not marathon distances!) in retirement, but not sure the joints are going to hold up and not sure I’ll ever get to “retirement”.

My daughter ran in the KC underground race on Sunday, was sort of stunned to see the results, that she beat a 77 year old runner by just a couple seconds.

If you are worried about your joints, check out "natural running" or "forefoot strike" running.

I just started running again last year after taking off twenty years because of foot problems...and so far I have had NO joint problems.

That said, it takes forever to condition your muscles and tendons to this style of running.
