Elite Maine runner, 70, left unhealthy habits behind to chase new goals
Rudy Kelley traded smokes and whiskey for running shoes four decades ago, and now aims for a third straight gold medal at the National Senior Games.

... “I’m out there to compete,” Kelley said. “And I’m out there to compete 100 percent.”

The National Senior Games – for athletes 50 and older – celebrate their 30th anniversary this summer. Maine will send a contingent of 84 athletes. All of them qualified by placing among the top three in state competition last year.

A crowd of more than 100 athletes and volunteers is expected Friday afternoon at the Fireside Inn in Portland, where Jo Dill, coordinator of the state games, will announce awards that include a Maine Senior Games Hall of Fame induction for Kelley.
