I am proud to say on October 20 I completed Nationwide Children Hospital Half Marathon in Columbus Ohio with a time of 2 hours and 45 minutes, I hope this encourages others to be active and continue with their lives. I am 69 years old and in 2015 had OPH surgery to implant an Edwards Aortic Bovine Valve. I take daily 25mg of Metropolol.
Good luck to everyone
Thank you to those you maintain and participate in the Forum.

Congratulations! That’s a big accomplishment and no small feat, regardless of heart condition.

Beats my time. The last one I ran was about 3:10 at age 65, I think. They actually dismantled the finish line before I got in. The guy who had been in last place most of the way passed me at mile 11 when I started to walk, so they thought they were done when he came in.

Congratulations. That's great. If my right ankle ever stops hurting, I may try a 1/100 marathon, and walk around the block a few times.
