Huffington Post shines a spotlight on masters track superstars
Meredith Melnick, a 29-year-old writer for Huffington Post, discovered the story of R. Laurence Macon, who at age 66 ran 113 marathons in 2011. Curious about what other old folks are doing, she contacted me. The result is this story about “7 Senior Fitness All-Stars Who Stay Competitive.” Meredith writes for the Healthy Living section of HuffPost, which has more online readers than The New York Times. So this is great. I suggested some names of people to include â€” Willie Gault, Phil Raschcker, Ed Whitlock and Don Pellman, for example. Meredith featured them in a slide show. She also linked to my site. Thanks, MM!
