73-Year-Old Man Just Completed His 50th Marathon In 50 States!
5 Marathons In 50 States
This is quite an amazing accomplishment for anyone, but this athlete is 73 years old, and an inspiration to us all. He started at age 60 and accomplished his goals 13 years later. It just goes to show you, it’s never too late to go for your dreams.
His name is John Maultsby, of Las Vegas. His time was impressive, too — clocking in at 4 hours, 9 minutes and 15 seconds, according to the Associated Press. He’s run notable routes like the Las Vegas and Boston Marathons — and told the New Hampshire Union Leader he was chased by a moose during a marathon in Alaska.
“I know there are runners out there that have done it a whole lot quicker,” Maultsby told WMUR9. “But I was 60 when I started and I don’t know too many people that started in their sixties to do the 50 states.” Maultsby had a cheering squad of about 20 relatives waiting for him at the finish line, and his wife was there for a congratulatory hug.
Congratulations John! Keep going!
