I'm 71 and have run 2 5k's. I'm single and train on my own. I would like to meet some female runners to meet and train together.,I placed in both races and improved my time in the 2nd. I ran ithe 34 minute in both.I train at the "Y" and want to run in the triathlon in june in naples.
Many speciality running stores have affiliated running clubs or groups for runners at all levels. Check with the stores in your local area. Also check with your YMCA; they will probably know about local running groups.
By the way, running 5K's at age 71 is fantastic! I'm 53 and hope to be running 5K's at 70+

Let me first say; How awesome you are for your accomplishments!! I am a newbie, too. I am training for my first 5k. I live near Brooksville/Spring Hill so, not close enough to train together. I wish you luck on your journey.
