I’m 65 years old, married, and live in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
I started running in 1978, at the age of 30, in order to lose weight. I ran for the next couple of years, completing a couple of 10K races and two marathons. Then life happened, and I was away from running for the next 30 years. I got back to it late in 2007, at the end of 14 months of physiotherapy for a broken femur. I started barefoot running in 2009. I mostly run and race barefoot, though I occasionally wear minimalist shoes for trail races and minimalist sandals for ultras.
I’ve survived two bouts of prostate cancer, in 2006 and 2010.
I’m an Aspie (i.e., I have Asperger’s Syndrome).
