Rockin’ & Rollin’ with Meals-on-Wheels

marthaMartha Walker, 78, finished her third marathon to the sound of cheers and guitar riffs on a sunny June day at the 7th annual San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon. Inspired by the view from the Coronado Bridge during her daily commute, Martha decided to take on the challenge of running from Balboa Park to Padres’ stadium. She finished first in her half marathon age group with a time of 2:50:36, ten minutes faster than her next competitor. This year’s marathon was made extra special by the participation of three generations of Walker women, Martha’s daughter-in-law along with her two granddaughters.

Martha represents a new mindset that prioritizes fitness at any age. In Martha’s words, seniors “don’t have to give up” on living an active lifestyle. Even though in her youth P.E. was not widely offered to girls, Martha has always enjoyed running. “Running was just fun for me, I loved just running freely like a child,” she said. Finding joy in exercise is Martha’s greatest motivator. She recommends that people her age, “find something that [they] like to do and keep doing it” in order to stay in the best shape possible. Martha believes it’s never too early to think about lifelong fitness – her advice for every age group is to “get off the couch and do something!”
