Richard J. Carling
Salt Lake City UT
DOB: 12-06-37
I started running at age 39 when I was a member of the Utah State Senate. I was taken from the senate floor to the lounge thinking I was having a heart attack. The doctors said it was stress and that I needed to do aerobic exercise to releave my stress. I started running and ran my first marathon at age 40 and the rest is history. I am now 71 years old and have no thought of stopping running.
I have now logged 100,065 miles as of 1-3-09 and have run 126 marathons including 30 Boston and 29 Honolulu Maratons.
