nothing like your health issues… but I am an adult onset runner (started when I was 37, I'm 54 now)… slow down, try the run/walk approach, Jeff Galloway gets a bad rap in some circles but the method he supports works for many people…

maybe even race walking might work till you build up your system a bit… I have a friend who race-walked half a dozen marathons (along with actual race walk events) before she ran a marathon, which she now does along with race walk events (considers them cross-training now)…

sounds like you are a strong person to have taken all you have and bounced back with goals and dreams… good luck..
