Word on the Street
"When I turned 54, I thought, ‘now is the time to join a running program!’ I did not feel out of place in this group. I felt welcomed and encouraged. So I kept attending and laughing and training and, to my surprise, started to be able to run a short distance without stopping. When I started I literally could not run around a city block without stopping. With many of my friends from my running group, I ran my first 5K without walking at the Baltimore's Women's Classic a few months later. I was so amazed that I was able to accomplish this that I actually cried."
