Growing Bolder


One of the running world's most beloved event is the Boston Marathon, which marked its 121st race this week. 30,000 people entered the event, each with his or her own motivation and inspiration. But one 2017 finisher stood out, making headlines all over the world. We're talking about Ben Beach, who just completed his 50th straight Boston Marathon (with a time that qualifies him to run #51 next year, if he chooses!).

Ben, whom we interviewed on Growing Bolder Radio about his streak, has a health condition that makes running difficult, but he says he wants to keep putting one foot in front of the other until he can no longer do it.

(2017 was also the 50th anniversary of one of the most memorable moments in Boston Marathon history -- and in honor of that special milestone, Kathrine Switzer ran Monday's race, finishing in less than five hours! Learn more here.)

Ben's story truly is inspirational. But he's not the only one who is chasing down the Fountain of Youth, one mile at a time:
In 2015, 82-year-old Katherine Beiers was the oldest person to complete the famed Boston Marathon. She is changing the stereotypes of what is possible and doing it with sweat and a smile.
World-record holding marathoner Harriette Thompson recently became the oldest woman in history to complete an official marathon when she completed the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon at the age of 92.

Over 37 years, the father-son duo of Team Hoyt competed in the Boston Marathon, with Dick pushing Rick, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy shortly after birth. Dick retired in 2014 but the team runs on! you have to be a runner? No way!
We have a very special project called Team Growing Bolder, where you can get inspired to start moving more. That could mean a walk around the block, or getting back to the sport you loved as a child (masters swimming, or softball or anything else!). To make it as fun and easy as possible, we've put together some training tips, podcast episodes and much more.

Plus, if you sign up for the Team Growing Bolder newsletter, you'll get even more motivation sent right to your inbox (click here to update your subscription and join Team Growing Bolder!).
