MOJI OVERVIEW:

Kevin Helliker, a Senior Editor at the Wall Street Journal, reflects on his recent Chicago Triathlon experience and the challenges of continuing to race into his 50s.  The article inspires baby boomers to continue their athletic endeavors while cautioning that the will to compete can lead longtime athletes to overtrain and incur unnecessary injuries.  Helliker interviews 51 year old Mark Allen, formally known as the world’s fittest man and a 6-time Ironman World Champion, to discuss how cutting back on both the competitive spirit and training can keep older athletes healthy and strong.
