Is it safe for a 60 year old female to run for miles?

My mom loves to run but I worry about her safety.


Answer by  Zoso (869)

Without any specific injury or evidence of ill health, and if she's in good shape and enjoys running, female of this age are perfectly capable of running long distances.

It is fine! It's actually great for her to love running, that means she is in fit. As long as she keeps a safe distace and stays out of trouble, it should be fine,

If she is fit then why not. If she has a certain health condition, then she should ask her doctor.

If she is in good shape and has a healthy heart, then she should be fine. Only a doctor can tell you for sure though.
