Art Finishes 2018 Charleston Marathon (2).jpgWhen I started running in 2001 at age 55, just to lose some weight, running a marathon was definitely not on my radar. But in the process of getting hooked on running, and since 55 year old legs are not normally built for speed, definitely not mine, I found myself enjoying the challenge of seeing how far I could run. The following year I managed to finish my first marathon on Kiawah Island under my optimistic 5 hour time goal. I was hooked again, this time on the marathon.
