A special in-studio guest, Katherine Beiers chats with Dimity and Sarah: At age 82, Katherine is the oldest finisher at 2015 Boston Marathon, running 5:53 in wicked-bad weather conditions. Perhaps more amazingly, this mother of three and grandmother of 10 didn’t start running until age 48 yet has since run nearly 50 races 26.2 miles or longer. Katherine tells why she started running—and what keeps her putting in the miles (a typical week for her is 30 or more miles!). Find out why she makes few concessions to age, except for occasionally running in gloves—and knee pads! This octogenarian’s advice to aspiring marathons might just make its way onto a tee shirt in our store one of these days.
