Unlike runners in their 20s and 30s, older runners are often walking that tightrope between performance, potential and overall health and wellness.  Running is still a battle to perform your best, but we’re also running for our health and overall well-being. That's why we’re thrilled to have legendary runner and writer Amby Burfoot on our podcast to discuss the key ingredients to running happy, maximizing potential, and staying healthy as we get older. In this episode, we cover… What are the key ingredients to being a runner for life? Why do some runners “defy age” and what are their secrets? Once we realize that we can’t run/train the way we could when we were younger, what’s your advice for staying motivated? What are some of the most common mistakes runners make as they get older? What about nutrition needs for older runners? Does that need to change as well? These answers and much, much more from one of the most influential runners and writers of the last few decades.
