For all of you 20 somethings and any others, who read this blog, please give a shout to Matt, who is taking on the Philly marathon this weekend. Matt is a great runner and for someone in his late 40's, his committment and passion for the sport, is all the more impressive.
In one's 20's the body is still gold and can withstand torture and still come back. In the 30's it gets to be harder. In the 40's. it just gets worse and so on. Thus, Matt deserves all the more credit and for coming out and training and racing, etc.
