One of the things I love about running is the respect there is for older athletes in the sport. When I turn 40 I will be called a 'Masters level' Runner and distance running can lead me to qualify and run the Boston Marathon.
Book Review: Second Wind The Rise of the Ageless Athlete by Lee Bergquist
I felt inspired to continue my running career after reading a few of the 18 athlete profiles that Bergquist, a journalist for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal, offered in this book. This book is well written and engaging; a great gift idea for an older athlete just starting to get in shape and train for running, swimming or another sport.
