I am a gold star mom. I lost my son three years ago in the Air Force just before he was going to retire after 20 years in. That's what got me running 2 years ago. I did to 5K runs and then found out I needed a hip replacement which I did a year-and-a-half ago. So I needed to get back up and moving again . I do walk 8 miles a day at my job, hip works great it's just getting the mine to agree to the running which I do like doing at 61 years old.
