I'm 62, started running at 50, and now average an 11 minute 5K. I was a member of many Facebook running groups for people my age and pretty quickly started to feel badly about my pace, which I worked really hard to attain. So I started my own group on FB called Running Like a Turtle, and EVERY person who joins says they just want a place to feel good about the effort they make. There's a lot of us slower runners out there, although our Turtle group does not allow the "s-word" to be used. We just run and cheer each other on!

I embraced the slow running (80/20) training style in 2021 and have not looked back :) Training injury free is fantastic and knowing you can still get faster this way really helps stick to it!
