Running brings joy and health benefits to all participants, especially those of the baby-boomer generation. But when legs get sore, joints feel achy, and old age generally creeps up, sometimes senior runners need a little extra motivation to get out of the door and on the road. In Running Past Fifty, lifelong runner Gail Waesche Kislevitz provides helpful tips and motivation from twenty-six runners aged fifty or older.

Presenting time-tested recommendations, Kislevitz interviews some of the nation’s greatest senior runners. Included here are exclusive interviews with greats such as Ed Whitlock, who, at the age of eighty-five, set an age-division world record of 3:56 in the marathon; Bill Rodgers, winner of four Boston Marathons and three New York City Marathons; George Hirsch, chairman of New York Road Runners; Olympian and author Jeff Galloway; world-record holder Sid Howard; and runner and journalist Marc Bloom.

And legendary runners aren’t the only ones running well into seniority. Kislevitz also offers motivational stories from average runners who hit the pavement frequently and refuse to let their age stop them from competing regularly.

Baby-boomer runners may be slower than they once were, but they show no signs of slowing down. Inspiring and insightful, Running Past Fifty is the perfect read for every one of them.
