With a little help, push, from my friends this new website was born.

The site’s purpose is to hopefully convince some of its readers the advantages of running as a very healthy alternative that running can give anyone. I was 60 when I started seriously and now at 76 I am healthier than I was when I was 50. Now my training has become as I call it a “Healthy Addiction”.  There will be a tab on my personal accomplishments but more importantly aside from running there are tabs on the multitude of other things it takes for us ageing folks to stay healthy. Please feel free to sign up for my monthly newsletter and blog.

I hope you enjoy this site.

Happy Running!

    HI Jim,
    Thanks for aquainting me with your great website and blog. You are a true web master well as an exceptional athlete and a good role model for seniors. .
    I am in the process of starting a blog. I would love to get your advice. My website was designed using MODX . So I asked this same MODEX comapny for a quote estimate. I gave them detaied requiremants and they said it will be expensiive to meet. So decided to go with a Power Point company. Is your blog essentialy a POwer Point design? Should I frget abut a MODX design? I wanta user a frndly design where I can farlyeasily insert photos nd videos. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Hello Jim.
    Jim, I am an American moving to Costa Rica on 19 January. I don’t know where to start. (LOL)
    If you can, tell me where I can find a good apartment in San Jose or close by. I am retired and I am now living in the Dominican Republic. I am a 69 year young man. I would love to meet you when I get there. Where do you live there? Maybe you can help me in other areas also. Like where doe’s the American ex-pats go for fun and excitement, where to buy good food, etc.
    Thank you Jim
    (I like your name, ha ha ha)

      Wow Tocayo I’m kind of late responding to this. How the heck did I miss you? Please email me at jim@runwithjim.com so we can get caught up and take a look at my blog of yesterday of the the North-Central American-Caribbean World Masters Championships competition held at the National Stadium this past weekend.

    Hello Jim,
    Just a note to let you know that there will be a Running Retreat in Rio Chirripo March 31 to April 6. Key speaker and trainer is Herb Lindsay, 1979 Pan Am Games 10,000m silver medalist and the top road racer in the US in 1979-1980. In addition to some great trail running, we will be covering training techniques for 5k and marathon.
    Please forward this message to any of your fellow runners who may be interested. For details e-mail me at CARTAJ@aol.com or call Frank Faiella at 2742 5109. Thanks. Jim Carter

    Thanks so much for putting this together. It’s a wonderful way to share and encourage others, who will find much in common with what you’re doing (or at least aspire to). Really well done.

    • RunWithJim says:

      Thanks Chuck,

      Training has improved my health by astronomic numbers. I recommend to everyone to just do something. Jogging is not my thing, but I can teach people how to exercise 15 to 30 minutes a day and burn all the calories they need to by doing the correct repetitions slow to fast sprints. Come on all of you out there drop me a line I’ll tell you what you need to know. Happy exercising…….

      Hi Cindy-Jennifer, I have no idea why I’m responding to this so late. Did you see my blog posted yesterday? I’ll be in Coco next weekend look forward to seeing you.

    My wife and I are considering retiring to, or at least spending serious time in, Costa Rica. We are also masters track and field athletes. Your blog of your progress from 60 onward is terrific, and gives us hope that there may be a masters track and field community in Costa Rica, perhaps in the San Jose area. Is this true?

    Your website is very inspiring. I have been battling with self-discipline for quite sometime. I, too am 72 years old but unlike you, I have not mastered the self control. I am going to resume “walking.” I know it is imperitive to just move and stay active – while I am still able. You are a role model and thinking of you will motivate me to exercise, in some way every day, until it becomes automatic. THANK YOU!!

    • RunWithJim says:


      Thanks for your inspiring comments. My guess is you live in the states. I do have a couple of Word Documents that I have written that might be of some help to get you started slowly. I have your email address so I will send you something to read. Thanks for taking a look at my website. Lets stay in touch. Jim
