Hi all,

This is great forum. My wife and I have started running more seriously. Both former athletes (Field and track - Martial arts etc) we have maintained fitness but not running. Now 54 and 53 and with a home in Cyprus (half of the year and the other half in Malaysia) we are increasing distances and plan to run a 50 miler in 2015.

I would also like to know is Helen Klein still alive / active. I googled etc but couldn't find out. She is someone we both recently watched in an old Eco challenge video and we were highly motivated. Thanks all ..... Colin

Did you ever find any info on Helen Klein? I, too, have been scouring to find info after reading an article in a magazine. I just started running in Feb at the age of 48, and her story was so inspiring! Post if you have any success. I figure she would be about 91 or so now.

Hello! I am also new here. I like running because it Running makes me feel free and be in shape. I am preparing for another marathon, hopefully, it will be OK.
