At 63 I have maintained an active lifestyle and have found that it helps to relieve stress keep me mentally alert and keep physically fit.Following major surgery in which I donated a kidney to my brother in law I am hoping to run in a half marathon next year to raise funds for renal research. I am not young and in fact was born in 1948 the year that London last had the Olympic Games. I hope to inspire others by having a positive attitude and hopefully by being a role model. If I could carry the Olympic Flame I think it would particularly be an inspiration to ordinary people especially the over 60s as it will show that there is still so much that we can do as we get older. I hope also that it may encourage younger people to get into an active lifestyle as my excellent recovery must have something to do with my fitness level. It may also help the organ donor cause.
