Did you know?

Did you know that Priscilla Welch started running at the age of 35 after smoking ‘a pack a day’ of cigarettes and by the time she was 39 years old she made an Olympic team in the marathon and at the age of 42 ran 2:26:51 in the marathon?

It’s never too late to get started!

This is what wikipedia had to say about her…

Priscilla June Welch (born 22 November 1944) is a British retired marathon runner. She twice broke the British record for the marathon, with 2:28:54 when finishing sixth at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics and 2:26:51 when finishing second at the 1987 London Marathon. The latter time stood as the W40 World Masters record for over 20 years. She also won the 1987 New York City Marathon.
