Walt gets some media love at the start of his half hundred hundreds quest.

Decreased energy, strange lumps on the body, soreness. Tim pushed off going to the doc for a long time, but eventually discovered he had pericarditis. He’s healthy, but his race plans for 2019 are in disarray. Here’s more.

Kevin lays out some good do’s and don’ts for masters runners.
