Happy New Year! This year you will see us pursue a number of themes and January is our "Inspiration" series.
Our feature interview this week is one of our audience favorites for 2020. If you are in your mid forties and think your best years are behind you, think again. Today we're taking you on a journey with endurance sports writer, coach and elite runner, Matt Fitzgerald. Matt decided to live out a dream to train and race with a professional running team to see exactly how much potential he still had in his 46 year old body. He ran as a pro at the Chicago Marathon trying to beat a 9 year PR of 2:41.
