What an inspiration you are! I started a bit late to have any chance of matching you. I'll have to see how my running is going when I'm 100.
Awesome achievementYou are a legend mate!
"If one can stick to the training throughout the many long years, then will power is no longer a problem. It's raining? That doesn't matter. I am tired? That's besides the point. It's simply that I just have to."Emil Zatopek

I have been telling my wife for many, many years that I am a legend. Her comment is "you are a legend in your own mind."
Thanks for the nice replies. Nick
Excellent! I too, was once a smoker. I've now been a non-smoker for more years than I smoked. Way to go!

Nick, did you stop smoking and then start running, or did you start running and then stop smoking.
I was a smoker like you (two to three packs a day) back in the late 70's. I was making fun of a friend of mine about running (how boring I said - any one can do that - it's not a skill sport like tennis or golf) and he challenged me to compete in a 5K that he was training for. I ran a mile or so a couple of times a week for a few weeks before the race. Ran the 5K (something like 21:30) and was hooked. Stopped smoking so I could run better.
Unlike you, I did not continue for too long - about 6 years. Then I joined the club of which you speak. Then at age 55 I started back. See how long I last this time. Thanks for the inspiration.
