70-year-old proves it’s never too late

Brenda Westbury

One day 13 years ago, Brenda Westbury of Savannah, Georgia woke up and made a resolution.

“I’m not happy with myself,” she recalls. “I weighed 263 pounds and wasn’t in a good place.”

Now 70, Westbury has completed an incredible 9 half marathons. “I am a better person because of running,” she says.

Westbury thanks the kind staff of Fleet Feet Savannah for helping her learn how to run. She is now giving back by coaching and mentoring run runners.

“I like me better now,” she says. “I can’t believe I’m 70 and just did a half marathon!”
