Japanese Marathoner Runs 2 hr 36:30 at Age 60!

Yoshihisa Hosaka of Japan broke the existing world record for men 60 and over at the 58th Beppu-Oita Mainichi Marathon on Feb. 1. According to the post at Japan Running News, Hosaka averaged 30 kilometers per day training for his record attempt.

MY COMMENT: Truly amazing. I would love to study his training- he must do huge volumes at a slow pace in order to recover. It's hard runners in their 20s to average 18 miles a day!
