  1. I started slowly on the treadmill and before I knew it I started jogging to keep up increasing the speed! I have done a 5 K and an 8 K in the past month with a goal of 10 races this year! I am training for the 10 K Bellin in Green Bay! I am almost 64 and my goal is to finish the 10 K with a better time than the very 1 st time I did this – >35 years ago! I have dropped 15#, BP under control without medications and keep up with my active family!
