Congrats to our client Karen K on finishing her second marathon at the age of 70!! Age is just a number. Here is what she had to say . . .
“I know this is late but wanted to share my Grandma’s Marathon story. It started last November with the realization I was going to be 70 in May and I wanted to step up my game and challenge my self, so I did what every 70 year young person does I signed up for a marathon.
As I always do when I run one is get an MTA coach. I was paired with Lynn Grieger and pulled the trigger on Metpro, I was a little skeptical about that but anyway I wanted to see what this was about. Long story short I’m the fittest and thinnest I’ve been in 20 years and also the most seasoned.
We added a few vacations days on to the trip. I can say this was a great experience I loved the race. I was at the back of the pack 6:45:32 to be exact. When you are that far back you run by yourself, not many spectators, but the ones that stayed I thanked.
Good news no lines at Porto pots, your finishing pic is just you and easy to find your gear bag. When i was almost there the announcer called my name my city and said she’s 70 I felt like a rock star.
Gotta say I’m ready to do another. My first was when I turned 61 my second 70, don’t think I should wait till 80 not sure where I’ll be.”
