Yes I still run every day at age 60. I have run 5 miles a day 95 days days in a row.
Miraculously nothing hurts, and I don't have to ice anything, and I don't stretch. I do the Stick massage of the calves for 1 minute then I am out the door for my run.
I also lift weights every day, for a different muscle group. I do a "pumping" routing with high reps (10-15 upper body, 15-20 for lower body), medium-high volume of 8-12 sets per muscle and only a 30 second rest between sets. Consequently, I am forced to use very light weights, but presto, absolutely nothing hurts, no shoulder or knee pain and I am the rare 60 year old still able to bench press and do squats. Each day's workout takes only 10 to 15 minutes. With light weights, zero warm-up is required and I have a complete gym in my basement, thus 15 minutes after waking in the morning the weight workout is done and I quickly massage the calves with the stick and I am out the door on my run.
Why do I still do it? So many reasons I must list them:
1) To protect my physical health. A tough irony of getting old is that the older you get, the more exercise you actually need to protect your health, even though you are likely more limited in your ability to exercise.
2) Being fit allows me to be more energetic to and experience more of life's good things. I will let you in on a secret. If you don't exercise, your life basically sucks. You could have all the money and power in the world and 5 wives like Henry the VIII, King of England, but without exercise, your life sucks like Henry's life sucked.
3) At age 60, from consistently running and doing the "pumping" weight routine, I am 5'11" 180 pounds and 8% body fat. I have a better physique than 95% of 25 year old guys. The "pumping" routine doesn't give you as much strength as a typical weight routine, but really gives you big muscles and you can stay pain free.
4) Running protects my mental health. It is the best form of aerobic exercise and I get the endorphins after every run for a couple of hours and over the long term, the serotonin. Very good for mental health.
5) I like to eat a lot. Running 5M doesn't by itself burn a lot of calories, but it keeps the metabolism high, so at rest I burn I lots of calories and can enjoy my 5 big meals each day.
6) Running keeps the good cholesterol levels high, critical fort heart health.
7) Running and the weight training keeps the bone density high. Walking, biking, swimming, elliptical, etc. does nothing for bone density. So far not a hint of arthritis anywhere and it is rampant in my family.
8) Running keeps the body fat low and low body fat combined with weight training, keeps testosterone levels high. No low T drugs for me - ever. Good test levels keep you healthy, strong, positive and "in the game", if you know what I mean.
9) I like to relax and take it easy the rest of the day. I have no guilt doing that knowing I got my exercise in and earned the R&R.
10) There are 60 year olds who can kick my butt in a 5K race by literally minutes, especially at 180 pounds, but guess what? Those guys are rare and I have more endurance than 99.9% of 60 year olds and 85% of 25 year olds. I am also stronger than 97% of 60 year olds and 75% of 25 year olds.
11) I love listening to my classic rock on my MP3 when I am running.
12) I love being out there and seeing the sun rise.
Now everyone follow my lead and inspiration and get off your butts and start running and doing a "pumping" weight routine!!
