This woman is an inspiration for sure! She runs and works out and at age 95 recently ran 60 meters in 29.86 seconds. Ida Keeling is 4' 6" and 83 lbs and started running at age 67, which means she has been running for 28 years now. I started running at age 28. My goal is to run 60 meters in under 30 seconds when I'm 95 too!
Welcome to Conejo Joe's Marathon Training and Running Blog. This started in April 2009 when I decided to start training for the inaugural Santa Barbara Marathon. Since then I've run several marathons and a number of other local races, while highlighting and babbling about a variety of things running-related in here, including training specifics, race reports, dealing with injuries (and I've had plenty of them). disappointments, successes, local races and so on.
I've been running since 1993 and have logged well over 50,000 miles since then. With over 30 marathons and a personal best time of 2:35 many years ago at the Los Angeles Marathon, I have a few things to say about running. My hope is that these posts provide you something of benefit, be it useful advice for your own training, a grin or two, or perhaps some motivation.
