Irongran: how keeping fit taught me that growing older needn't mean slowing down

Brocklesby, Edwina, author

At the age of 50, Eddie Brocklesby decided to run her first half marathon. Until that point, she'd done little running, and her exercise regime consisted of little more than chauffeuring her children to their own sports clubs. In common with so many people, any interest she'd shown in sport in her childhood had diminished as her adult life progressed, with spare time becoming ever more limited in the face of work and family commitments. But the half marathon was the first of what was to become a hugely impressive trajectory of sporting accolades and successes. After that event, and following the loss of her husband of thirty years to cancer, she completed a marathon. Now nearly 74, the past twenty years has seen her take part in marathons, triathlons and Ironman races across the globe and she has accrued many medals and awards
