I could NOT kick you ass sir. Im an over weight, old, out of shape never was coming of a 2 week cold. Jogged 4 miles Thursday and Friday and now im an empty shell of a man. I have seen that the Hartford 1/2 Marathon is usually won in around 83-84 mins.in the 50 years old division and wonder if i could get back in shape to do that? I ran 76 mins. at 40 but thats a million years ago.
Your right about this - its not the years its the mileage. If i had a nickel for every stud grandmaster who took up running late in life id be rich.
