This week we talk to 66-year old Masters Runner Tom Bernhard of Castro Valley, CA. He currently holds four men’s 65-69 American age group records - 1 Mile, 5000m, and 10,000m on the track along with the 5K record on the road. Tom is a four-time Road Runner of the year in your age group: once in 55-59, once in 60-64, and twice in 65-69. And he's won the Masters LDR Grand Prix two times: once in 2015 in the 60-64 age group and once in 2017 in the 65-69 age group.
In this episode, we discuss how Tom has managed to work through various injuries and how he continues to be able to race at a high level.
