Have you dreamed of running a half-marathon but don't know how to start? You are not alone.  We have heard from a lot of friends and family post-50 that there is a real desire to stay active, and even to kick it up a notch.  What better way to start than the Colfax half-marathon?  According to Running USA, an industry-funded research group, runners 50 years and older represent one of the fastest-growing age groups participating in marathons.
