Jennifer Kellett absolutely crushes the age group divisions. For example, she ran a half marathon in 1:37:31 and broke the Australian 65-69 age category record and at the time was only 2 seconds off the World Record. It wasn't until her early 60s that she made running her primary sport. Jennifer is a member of our Personal Best Running Coaching Program, more info at
