Betsy Hall is like many people who participate in Senior Games–she loves it so much, she is motivated to tell others to get involved and keeps after them until they do.
The Ohio native was a late bloomer who did not participate in sports as a youth, but caught the running bug at age 45 after her overweight husband was told to walk and run for exercise and she went along to provide company. “He did it for about two weeks, and I just kept on going,” she says. She worked her way up to log three marathons while also enjoying annual track and road race competitions in local and multiple state Senior Games for 21 years before her knees gave out.
