I'm 40 years old, exercise regularly (run 2-4 miles 2-3 times per week) and have a resting hr of 53 bpm. I'm a bit overweight. Is that BPM normal?

In brief: Athlete's heart

That is a normal heart rate for some one who exercises regularly.
An athletic heart beats slower at rest because or can pump more efficiently with each heart beat.
