67 and running 10km races, very admirable... I like how it mentions this could have happened 20 years ago (when he was 47) if he hadn't been so active... which is exactly the way our sedentary society is headed.

I ran against Art a couple of times in Tey 10 races. Usually saw him at the start and then the back of his head as he ran away from me. Very inspiring Art. Look forward to seeing your times.

This is a great article and I have the greatest admiration for Art Meaney who is not only a great runner but a gracious member of the running community. I also agree with his comment that one is likely to do better when health issues arise if you have an active and overall healthy lifestyle. I learned this through the Running Room and try to convey this to people who attribute all ills to running . Well done Art. We wish you an excellent recovery -from far and near!

Art is a true inspiration and not only has he helped himself live longer without having a "cardiac incident" and recover from it at "record speed" but I know for a fact that he has probably done the same for many others who like him, have no idea that he has saved them from premature ill health. His running clinics have been responsible for many people taking up healthier lifestyles. I will also plug Mr. Johnson and all of his trail development as well as the volunteers with the East Coast trails! You don't have to have lots of money to be active and be empowered, right ART?!!! :)
