Active Inspiration

I've run 3 marathons, all after the age of 40, and I've known women, many older who continue to inspire me with physical activity.

AARP Bulletin this morning, 8-15 has a video clip of the oldest woman marathoner in the country, Margaret Hagerty, 85 who has run 80 marathons, all after 64 years of age!

Check out her video at http://bulletin.aarp.org/ Scroll down the page a little to the multimedia specials. Sorry I can't add it here, not tech savvy enough.

Hi Angie,

I just came across your posting about our video 'Marathon Woman' about Margaret Hagerty. I wanted to share the direct link with you (at the end of this message). This link takes you to the video page directly, it will never expire and the screen is a bit larger than it was on our homepage.

Hi Angie,

It's Nicole again. I have created a shortened URL for this video, as I noticed that the other one appears to be cut off in my previous post. Here is it:
