Welcome to Getting Fit at Fifty

My name is Art Davis and I started running in 2007 to lose weight. Check out my before and after photos at the bottom of the page. I ran my first 5K and 10K in 2007 I went on to run my first half Marathon and full Marathon in 2008.

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time out of their busy day to visit this blog. I started this blog on January 15, 2011 and so far have had 357 page views. The response has been nothing short of overwhelming. I have had nothing but positive reponses and feed back. I have made new friends on facebook, I had a charity from Chicago contact me about running with their group in the Chicago Marathon, people have congratulated me on my weight loss, people have contacted me to say that I have inspired them. Overall this has been a very humbling experience and I have to say Thank You.
Now I have to go run, 3.5 miles on the treadmill,  I cannot let all these new friends down!
Again Thanks,
