Bit, it is not just a matter of staying in shape and being fit. Bones wear out over time despite efforts to prevent it. Most of the women I know that were all avid runners gave it up by age 60. Some would have liked to keep it up, but their doctors had advised against it. By that time they'd accumulated a lot of injuries and stress fractures. Two complained of sore hips from it.

I suppose that heredity again plays a factor in it, plus diet. But it simply could have been from years of over use. They had an assortment of chronic ankle, knee, hip and feet problems from the years of running too which led to all of them having arthritis in at least one of those joints.

My one friend's orthopedist told her that she was actually running her bones to the point that they were consuming themselves. She was losing bone mass on every scan which he had her take quarterly until she finally stopped. She ran everyday after work for 45 minutes a day for at least 25 years. She took up cycling after that.

I worked with a man who ran everyday at lunch until the doctor told him that if he didn't stop he might end up in a wheel chair. He was about 63 and had run daily for more than 35 years. He absolutely hated stopping it and started going to the gym instead.

Neither of those two had an extra ounce of fat on them. Neither smoked or ate an unhealthy diet, quite the contrary.
