AGE (AND WEIGHT) IS NOTHING !

Kathy Martin is 60-year old female who never ran a track race until her late-40s.  Despite this, she has gone on to break numerous age-based world records.

At 60, she can still run a mile in 5:30.  That’s faster than most men…of any age!

Her secret is the right diet and training (including many No Running principles).  Like an increasing number of people, Kathy discovered that a lot of little things can have a big impact on how you look, feel, and perform.  I’m living proof — transforming from a drunkard and 50 pounds overweight to National Champion, I discovered that almost anyone can turn the clock back and become as healthy and fit as a high school kid.

Being a member of the NO RUNNING community on Facebook will help. We’ll share the knowledge needed to take small easy steps to losing weight, getting fit, and becoming the Champion you want to be. By the way, we just hit 200 member this week. And the more members we have, the more we’ll give…so, invite your friends to join the movement! https://www.facebook.com/groups/NoRunning/

After Late Start, Runner Is Speeding Through Records

Distance running is more popular than ever. Running USA, a nonprofit organization that promotes the sport, counted 13 million finishers in road races in 2010, up from 5.2 million in 1991 and 500,000 in 1976. Much of the rise comes from aging baby boomers, building their stamina like a retirement nest egg. In 2010, 45 percent of all finishers were 40 or older; in 1991, the percentage was 35 percent, in 1976 only 28 percent

Recent medical research shows that many of the ravages of aging are not so much inevitable as voluntary. Muscles do not have to shrivel, joints do not have to stiffen. Earlier expectations of physical deterioration were based on studies of sedentary people. But there is a marked difference in durability between the fat and the fit, the layers and the players. People who continue to exercise intensively have a much slower rate of decline

Martin usually works out seven days a week, not four or five. She runs and does plyometric exercises that emphasize strength and speed. She eats sensibly though not fanatically. She enjoys a good steak and an occasional glass of wine. She takes a multivitamin every day along with supplements of zinc, magnesium, calcium, vitamin D and omega-3.

Her face looks young for 60, and her legs have the muscle tone of an athlete half her age. Her body seems as finely tuned as a Formula One racecar. She routinely visits a chiropractor, a massage therapist, a strength coach and a physical therapist. She refers to these healers as Team Martin, and she believes they keep her aligned, stretched, kneaded, restored and stimulated.
