“I’m 61 and have been working at a tech start-up for the last six years. I am 20 to 30 years older than most of my peers but have been a dependable leader using my experience to mentor and train. ”
— John Dwyer
“I started running at 52, ran eight marathons and became an Achilles guide. I met Sissel Markhus, 56, who is deaf, mute, legally blind, and became a first-time marathoner. A real thrill. ”
— Dali St. Claire
