DALLAS (AP) - You might say Orville Rogers is a late bloomer.
The 95-year-old began getting in shape by running at age 50. And he started competing as a runner even later in life. Rogers began running in master's track and field events five years ago, and the Dallas man now has more than a dozen medals and records.
The WWII and Korean War veteran says he started running the day after reading "Aerobics" by Dr. Kenneth Cooper. That was 1968 -- and he never looked back.
Cooper became Rogers' physician and says Rogers is a testament to getting in better shape as you age. One thing Rogers is proud of is having run a 10-minute mile in recent years.
Rogers says he'll compete in events at a Kansas track meet this weekend.
