I ran marathons between the ages of 35 and 37, gave them up, ran some more in my early 60s, and have given them up again. Too painful (maybe because I tried to run them too fast) and I got tired of all the long training runs, which also put too much stress on the body. So I'm back to tempo and interval training for 10Ks and Halfs, which I enjoy a lot. Winning, or finishing near the top, in my age group is fun too. Hope to run some big races in various countries and crush the competition. :)
