Had to share this from Kevin Helliker in the Wall Street Journal as it explores the issue of endurance athletes and aging. Helliker argues that after the age of 50, athletes need to let go of the will to win if they want to stay healthy.
As a person who has struggled with age and injuries, I totally understand Helliker’s argument. But I’m still cranking out personal bests in triathlon and half marathon events. Eventually, that will subside, but at least you can hope to compete heavily with your age class.
In any event, Helliker shares some great insight in his article based on his experience in the recent Chicago Triathlon. Check it out at http://tinyurl.com/l845c9.
Going to take a few days off to enjoy the holiday weekend, so you do the same!
