Congrats on the diligence Rob. I'm starting up on some serious get in shape things now. Biggest item to address is loss of flexibility, primarily due to Sitting ;)

I've been out of running for decades, and I doubt I could make much of a comeback. The last full marathon I ran was in 1972. (3:40 at age 16) A lot has happened to the old body since then, much of it as a result of the constant pavement pounding from those days.

I tried to prepare for a local marathon the last couple of years. Possibly just part of a relay, or doing half. I just can't get the mind excited about it enough to be serious. I know I'd have to lose 40 pounds, and I'd never be competitive, even in my age class.

So Kudos to you for setting a goal, meeting it, and moving on further. It is a big accomplishment.
