“I’d ideally like to be a bird, but running is a close second” /#thisis50plus

For a number of years, I’ve been a fan of Bernd Heinrich, the natural history writer and biologist. It was only in the last couple of years that I came across his earlier book, Why We Run: A Natural History, and learned about his very successful ultramarathon career.

He is no longer competing in ultras, but he’s still running. See if this Salomon Running TV profile (filmed a few years ago, when he was 72) doesn’t make you want to be Bernd Heinrich when you grow up.
