An Interview With 60+ World Record Holder Yoshihisa Hosaka

JRN recently interviewed Yoshihisa Hosaka about his training and background leading up to his 60+ world record 2:36:30 performance at February's Beppu-Oita Mainichi Marathon. The interview and some photos appear in the June issue of Running Times magazine, available Apr. 28.

Hosaka will run the Los Angeles Marathon next month in an attempt to bring his record down to 2:34, his target time for his record-setting run in February.

You better believe it!
He may have a hard time at LA, though, since it will most likely be hot...possibly very hot. I was going to run it, but when they changed the date from Feb. 16 to May 25, I changed my mind. Along with a lot of other people.

Hosaka-san is a great inspiration to the senior marathoners!!! I wish him the best at LA.
