Running a Marathon in Midlife an Interview with Jeff Korhan
Is running a marathon on your bucket list? Maybe you haven’t gotten to it (yet). Maybe you think you are too busy (it does take a lot of time to train). Or maybe you think running a marathon is something only the young can do. If this is you then my guest today is perfect for you, he is here to tell you that not only is it not too late…but you might find that you run FASTER as you age.
In today’s episode, I interview my speaker, marketing, and author friend Jeff Korhan, about how he went from not running, very much, to now running marathons regularly, and even qualifying for Boston (with COVID). Listen in as he shares his tips for running marathons later in life.
Jeff Korhan is a professional speaker, host of two podcast shows, the bestselling author of Built-In Social, and a regular content contributor to dozens of leading business publications. On a personal level, despite life experiences that include marathons, triathlons, cliff-diving, and meditating in the deserts of India, Jeff considers himself to be completely normal. He lives in Chicago and Naples, FL.
