The Ageing Scientist

Season 3 Ep 2 - Keep on running (or start later in life)

November 30, 2021

Being joined by two fellow keen runners in this special episode, I talk to Jacquie Millet and Dr Paula Watson from LJMU about running, exercise, and ageing well. Jacquie has only started running after retiring at 58, and is now about to embark on her 210th marathon in her late 60s! Jacquie is also a 6-Star finisher and has done the famous Comrades Marathon. Paula is a regular park runner and exercise psychologist, and highlights how we may not need to run marathons or even engage in exercise to stay physically active in old age, despite the great fun marathons can bring.
