Record Busting 85 year old Marathoner!

Ed Whitlock, an 85 year old resident of Milton, smashed the record for his age group by 40 minutes at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on Oct 16th.    He ran the marathon in just under 4 hours!

Many of us at My Healthcare Concierge are runners, so we know that most runners (in their 30’s and 40’s) aspire to run a marathon in under 4 hours.    I have tried twice and failed, so I am particularly proud of Ed to do it at his age.

While Ed is the exception, he is a reminder of the power of remaining active and healthy.   Life can throw many health curveballs at us even if we do everything right, but it certainly helps to exercise regularly and live life to the fullest.

Congratulations to Ed Whitlock!   See the great article below in the Globe and Mail.
