In brief: Smart!
It is never too late to start running, but taking it slow and build up to higher speed and longer distances is always wise.
Starting a complete core stabilization program along with the running would further build your endurance and overall condition. In fact, the running and exercises will greatly reduce your chances or falling, chances of fracture, and improve your overall health!
