I’ve got a Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal…
Would it be possible to break 15 minutes for 5k at the age of 50? I’m going to find out.
In early May of 2018, I will turn fifty, and I want to see what’s still possible. Ten years ago, about to turn forty, I had a similar idea – Even though I hadn’t run in seventeen years, could I start training and make the Olympic Trials at the age of forty? This preposterous question lead to the creation of The Running Raw Project – a crazy ride through the worlds of raw foods, research, and racing.
A lot has changed over the past ten years, and I’m happy with where things are headed. One of the big changes, is my dietary philosophy. While I’m no longer a raw foodist, I do still eat a very simple plant-based diet. My training philosophy has changed as well, as I’ve become a big fan of big mileage and big smiles.
