I was a much better runner in my 20's and 30's. When I was 52 I had a 28.5 5K and a 58.5 10K, and I would like to surpass those times.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Run a 1/2 marathon. I would actually love to run a full marathon, but am not sure if my body would break down with injuries training for one. Update fall 2010: still no 1/2 marathon, but I did run all the way up city creek and back home (14 miles) - absolutely gorgeous!!
My name is Adele Kimbrough - I'm 58 and have been running (off and on) since I was 16. My body is not well designed for speed, and I'm a bit arthritic, but I'm having fun trying to figure out just how fast I can be. And this blog helps!
2011 Deseret News 10K Finish Line.
Dang - missed my goal by 4 seconds!
Ok, Thanks to reading the latest Runners World magazine and various snipits from the fast running blog site, I am now motivated to start running again! Ran on my rather souless, but faithful, treadmill.
