Older Runners Beat Marathon

Older runners are having no trouble conquering the marathon event.

In fact, runners 50-plus runners are the fastest growing age segment in marathon running according to a recent article by Kevin Helliker in the Wall Street Journal.
If you think a marathon wasn't in the cards because of your age, think again. This article refers to how older runners are getting smarter about training to prevent injuries.  Cross-training, longer recovery periods and walking-running techniques make this event easier for older runners.

Maybe you're next?

Getting ready to get the legislative session started, so I will be taking a break from posting for the next week or so.
