Miami speech-1At the 2015 dinner, motivational running speaker Joe Muldowney spoke on  ‘Personal Best,’at 5:30pm and ‘Advice for running in your 50s and 60s.’ at 6:30pm. Joe is the author of the book, “Running Shorts: A Collection of Stories and Advice for Anyone Who Has Ever Laced up a Pair of Running Shoes,” published in 2011, and most recently, a second book, “Personal Best,” which was published in September 2014.  Joe’s books are based on his 38 years of competitive running, both as a national-class marathoner, with a personal best time of 2:22:54, 48 marathons under the 3-hour mark, 12 under the 2:30 mark, and as a successful “older” runner, posting a time of 2:58:56 at the 2010 Philadelphia Marathon, as a 57-year old.  His latest book, “Personal Best,” is a self-help book for runners, and includes my personal account of the events at the 2013 Boston Marathon, in which he finished in a time of 3:04.
