Meet and learn why both older men and women are passionate about fitness and athletics. "Second Wind: The Rise of the Ageless Athlete" is an absorbing account of a growing subculture of Americans who are challenging the notion of what it means to grow old. There are 80 million baby boomers in the United States and Canada and the oldest are racing into their 60s. Boomers can hardly be considered old, however, as this huge demographic group rewrites the rules on aging. Their participation rate in sports and fitness is nearly as high as that of younger age groups and it's climbing. "Second Wind: The Rise of the Ageless Athlete" is an inspiring book that describes the lives of more than a dozen competitors, many of whom are performing at levels that were unheard of a generation ago. Chapters range from a subculture of joggers who run every day for decades without taking a day off to those who seek athletic perfection in the brevity of the 100-meter dash. Their stories of sacrifice and hard work will motivate athletes and weekend warriors of any age.
