About the Book
Guinness World Record holder Martin Parnell shows how, at 62 years of age, he devoted himself to beating his personal running records set in his 40s and 50s, and to get into the best shape of his life.
In May 2017 Martin Parnell tackled the Calgary 150km Ultra Marathon. He didn’t finish. This was just one of a number of racing disappointments he had encountered over recent years and he found that he was running slower and slower.
Parnell realised that he had to do something drastic if he was to turn things around. To accomplish this Martin realised he would need the best shoes, best gear, best nutrition and of course the best coach. Martin knew just the trainer: Malc Kent. Kent is a highly experienced coach and one of the leading experts in the world in remote and wearable gait analysis. He has coached athletes in more than 10 countries and performed more than 4000 gait analysis on runners of all levels, all over the world.
In this book Martin and Malc show the importance of the runner / coach relationship especially in terms of the older athlete, while also resonating with anyone who wants to challenge themselves or learn something new. Remember: Age is just a number!
