How to Train for Aging, The Ultimate Endurance Sport

Aging is coming, whether you are ready or not.

I’m so glad I took up an endurance sport in my 50s. I sure wouldn’t have been ready for an aortic aneurysm in 2010, or now, in my mid-70s with peripheral arterial disease due to genetic hyperlipidemia.

Bob Scott, an inspiration for older people facing the challenges of aging. He beat me three times in the Eagleman, Half-Ironman race, at age 81, 82 and 84 – WITH HEART STENTS, when I was in my 60s. Bob sure inspires me to keep going. Thanks, Bob!

Successful aging is the true hero’s journey, and it’s not about you. It’s about how you use your later years to help others.

Furthermore, you’ll benefit from training physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

You are never too old to train, my friends.

Wishing you happy trails,
