too old???????????

Hi,I'm a 49 yr. old female that has been weightlifting and spinning for quite a while.   I started running on a TM about 2 months ago.  I am up to 5K.  I love it and feel great.  I've just decided to enter a 5K race and am very excited about it. Just to spoil everything, I was told today that I am already too old to start running.  Other activities such as swimming, elliptical, spinning are safer - but running could be dangerous.  Is this true?  I know someone out there will tell me what I want to hear.  Also, should I continue weightlifting while training for the 5K, if I do decide to do it?  Thanks.
