Training for an Ultra Marathon at 57!

This was such a fun interview with my friend Dorian Meyer.  We sat on  Dorian’s beautiful porch overlooking Sandy Hook and the NYC skyline.   I have been wanting to interview her because she has such amazing energy and spirit!  I’ve known Dorian for a long time through running. She was an exceptional runner in her “day”!

During the interview, we talk about fashion, running. and her latest challenge, ultra marathoning.  At the age of 57, Dorian is training for a 50 mile Ultra Marathon!

Dorian’s last race was the NYC marathon in 2004. She stopped racing because she needed to take care of her Mom and sister who both sadly had cancer. She describes how running saved her during that time. I had the same kind of experience when Thomas, my miracle kid was in the hospital for 13 months. I would get up, run and then drive to the hospital. It saved me too. You just put one foot in front of the other.

Enjoy the interview.
Go see Dorian for new sneakers at her beautiful blue store in Shrewsbury, NJ. Shore Footed.

    • Hi Cindy, So great to hear from you. I am happy that you are a blog reader. I am sprinting once a week and love it! I tried to work up to 3 miles in a row on Sunday mornings, it was just too hard. I am going to stick to my OutdoorFit sprint day! It makes me feel strong and empowered. I don’t check my speed because what is the point. I hope all is well with you. Are you running?

      • No, I do ALOT of walking (mostly with our dogs) and hiking. Did all the high peaks in the Catskills, Adirondacks, Vermont & most in NH. I also do stretching, quad exercises, etc twice a week :). And you look wonderful & more importantly, are fit & empowered, so keep doing what you are doing :).
