Fitness StatementStarted running seriously at age 64. Did not consider myself a "runner" until I read that "If you run, you are a runner". I have also heard that new runners typically improve for ten years. Seems pleasantly ironic at my age. Other than a set-back from an injury (resulting from bad form) , after four years I am still consistently improving my pace and age-graded performance. I am empirical evidence that to a degree intensity of your workout can replace extensive time on your feet in training., and that if you don't accept preconceived limits on your ability you are no longer limited. Diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2004. Started training at Rock Steady Boxing, a unique non-contact boxing training program designed for people with PD, in 2007. As a result, I feel I have achieved the best fitness level of my life for my age despite the effects of PD. I run because I can, because it is empowering, as a symbol of believing in yourself, and to honor those who are challenged by their physical condition and are not so blessed. 
Quote“I will see it when I believe it. . . . "There was this old guy . . . Must have been about 70 . . . (warming up for the race)" -- "Watch who you are calling old!"” 
Running AchievementsRecognized as Earthlete Ambassador for 2014.

I ran my first marathon at age 66, with guidance and companionship (step for step) from my brother. Achieved my goal of finishing the 2013 Indy "500" Festival Mini healthy. Missed my 'silent' goal of eclipsing my time set in 1984 at the Mini, where I started running, by only 25 seconds. I then ran a half PR in November, 2013. To borrow from P. Rothschild, "Slower I was. Faster I became. It is just a number." Training pace seems to indicate there is still room for improvement. Typical rules do not apply to a 68-year-old who doesn't know his limits yet. I started running late, but continued improvement illustrates that training and commitment can go a long way in compensating for the loss of under-appreciated youthful energy. (Any day running is another good day of praising the blessing.)

runnerGreat workout with Coach Matt Ebersole's PBT yesterday. WU, a couple of 1 min. sprints, 3 miles steady, finish strong, CD. I have been struggling since my quad injury March 23rd. Still not up to my own expectations, but I now have more optimism. Focusing on the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon and Half Nov.1.

runnerWhy I CAN run is all about the cross training program I have been in for five years. Tuesday we had guests from Ch. 8 news who aired a feature on Rock Steady Boxing at 5:30 last night. Watch at: http://www.wishtv.com/dpp/health/parkinsons-patients-fight-back-with-boxing-moves?ref=scroller

runner"Monumental Bean" is a 3 minute video produced by Kristy Follmar, trainer at Rock Steady Boxing. With encouragement and inspiration from family and friends, I trained for my first marathon last summer. All was going well until I got into the last month, when poor form (hamstring dominance poor glute action) began to take a toll on my knees. The training pace had indicated a possible 4:30 - 5:00 finish until the falloff following 3:00 and 3:45 long runs when the poor technique began to take its toll. I had enough leg strength to carry a half, but without the glutes the knees began to lose stability . Determination trumped prudence, and I finished in 6:22:21 thrilled, fulfilled, and with extremely sore knees. My brother (a 3:30 marathoner), who supported me throughout, sacrificed his race to be there step for step. Unending thanks to my wife, teammates, and many friends who were there in person or in spirit. I ran as a way to praise the blessings I have received, and to honor and encourage those who are in a tougher race every day than I was last November. It was a privilege to donate my medal to Medals4Mettle. (http://www.medals4mettle.org)
