My parents went through RCIA when Dad was 88 and Mom was 76.
Dad only got to attend about a half-dozen sessions before his terminal cancer had run its course, but he had already been brought into the Church several months earlier on profession of faith - a priest can do that in certain circumstances, including imminence of death. (Dad's first reaction when he learned that he was dying was to turn to me and say "Call your priest." It was a beautiful moment.)
So, no, you are not too old by a long shot. In the years I spent teaching RCIA, I'd say the median age of our participants was mid-30's. I can't speak for your area, but if you had been at my old parish, you'd have found most of the participants at about the same stage of life as you.
This is great. I have the rest of my life (hopefully I live over 100 years) to study and practice the Catholic faith
Dad had been given 3 months to live if
he survived the operation to bypass the blockage in his intestine caused by the cancerous tumor (he did). He lived for 6 months afterward, and studied his newfound Catholic faith every day. On my dad's last lucid day, 36 hours before his death, Father came to the house and gave Daddy the sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist, and the Anointing of the Sick.
I'm still awed at what a testimony of faith Dad's brief life as a Catholic was. Both priests co-celebrated his funeral Mass and one of the Deacons, whose job makes it all but impossible to be free on a weekday, presided not only at the Mass, but at the Rosary the night before. I'm humbled just thinking about it now.
