Bob Phillips in New York
The New York City Marathon (26.2 miles) is one of the largest races in
the world with over 36,000 runners and walkers, its held every November.
I'm 63 and stopped smoking when I was 40, but I was diagnosed with severe
COPD in 2002. I had run 10 marathons in my younger days after I stopped
smoking, but I really thought those days were over. I made a New Year's
resolution in January of 2005 to try for one more by using a modified race
walk style of walking and also losing some weight, I trained for 6 months
at increasing my endurance by walking longer distances, my longest walk
was 15 miles in October, plus I also lost 15 lbs.
