For runners, cyclists, triathletes, swimmers, and cross-country skiers, getting older doesn't have to mean getting slower.

One part personal quest to discover running greatness after age 50, one part investigation into what the women's running boom can teach athletes about becoming fitter, stronger, and faster as we age, Older, Faster, Stronger is an engrossing narrative sure to inspire women of all ages. A former overweight smoker turned marathoner, Margaret Webb runs with elite older women, follows a high-performance training plan devised by experts, and examines research that shows how endurance training can stall aging. She then tests herself against the world's best older runners at the world masters games in Torino, Italy. Millions of women have taken up running in recent decades--the first generation of women to train in great numbers. Women are qualifying for the Olympic marathon in their 50s, running 100-mile ultra marathons in their 60s, completing Ironmans in their 80s, competing for world masters records in their 90s. What are the secrets of these ageless wonders? How do they get stronger and faster long after their "athletic prime"? Is there an evolutionary reason women can maintain endurance into advanced years? Webb immerses herself in these questions as she as she trains to see just how fast she can get after 50.

In a culture enamored with youth and beauty, the 50th birthday is often seen as a death sentence...in more ways than one. It’s easy to see why...what was once perky is now droopy. What’s trending now trumps wisdom. Good health is waning. And, after years of putting others first, many find they are lonely, depressed and lack meaningful work. On the eve of her 49th birthday, Laurie Russell stood before a dark path, struggling to find purpose and joy. It was do or die, and it scared her. Early one morning, (because she couldn’t sleep...again), she asked God, “Why am I still here? What is it you want me to do?” “Focus on regaining your health – physically, relationally, emotionally and spiritually – and then write about it.” So the journey began. Journey to 50 shares the real-life steps and tools Russell used to regain the joy in her life and to see age as a privilege. Her book covers: Overwhelming Dread Open Relationships (It’s not what you think!) Optimal Health Organic Faith Outrageous Fun Most of the greats in the Bible were given their “big adventure” in the second half of their lives. Why should it be any different for us? God doesn’t want us to sit on the sideline any longer. (He knows how many hours we’ve put in watching little league!) It’s time to reevaluate our life, sit before God and plan out our next journey. Let the celebrating begin!
