Welcome, Age Disruptors, to — Burning Man?

When I was 8, I was diagnosed as prediabetic and told that I would need insulin for the rest of my life. I wanted to change that even then. In college, I set a lifetime goal of running three miles per day and, so far, have achieved that.
Running has come easily to me at every age, but I realize that’s not the case for everyone. In 2004, I cofounded the National Black Marathoners Association with Charlotte Simmons. Our goal was to bring together black runners of all ages and skill levels across the country and to raise money to send black students to college.
We hope to inspire others to run by leading free workshops in churches and schools about how to start running clubs in ethnic minority communities. In Dallas, one club will be running its first marathon this month!
Playing women’s softball with the Maryland Roadrunners is social, active and fun — all rolled into one. All of the players are at least 60 years old. We’ve played together for over 16 years and have traveled all around the United States and Canada, competing against other teams in our age group.
We are committed to practicing faithfully, playing to win (but not at all costs), ensuring every player has the opportunity to contribute, and only allowing positive and constructive attitudes on the field. We’ve won numerous championships, including the National Senior Games and Huntsman World Senior Games, and are proud to be known for our sportsmanship as well as our success.
Our team has a never-say-die attitude and great chemistry. We do our best, and we appreciate the efforts of our teammates. We have become so much more than a softball team.
