If it starts, run it. If it's too sick to run, it won't start. --> basically an old locomotive mantra.
FWIW, my '95 F250 with 286k runs just as well as my '95 Superduty with only 27k. Both have almost the same amount of blowby. Remember, you've got a 444 cubic inch pump running, so there will be air moving if the crank is turning. I reckon the big thing is oil loss. If you're leak free, but consuming a fair amount of oil, start looking at injector cups, worrying about rings, etc.
So not to worry.
