Mid Life Running
by Alison Doyle
I started running again when I was 55. I signed up for a 10k to celebrate my 55 birthday. I walked and ran the 10 k in 1:39 but I think I can go faster than this.
I suffer from low mood swings and find that running helps lift my moods. It also gives me self esteem, as I have younger friends who I know can't run 100 meters.
