26 Miles at 96 Years - Why I Enjoy Good Health at 96 and You Can Too
Jonathan D. Mendes, author
This is the story of my life-long love of the outdoors and physical activity, my good fortune to stop smoking and start jogging at age 46, my introduction to running marathons through the NY Road Runners Club, the wonderful and inspiring people I have met there, and the satisfaction of completing 16 NYC Marathons, including my last in 2016 at the age of 96. It is also a reflection on the some of the life habits I learned that helped bring me to this fortunate point. It is my hope that my story will encourage and motivate others to embrace 1) regular physical activity, 2) healthy living, and 3) seeking goals.
