Goodbye Ed Whitlock, You Will Be Missed!

We were saddened yesterday to hear of the passing of marathon great Ed Whitlock of prostate cancer. He was a Canadian runner who held multiple world records for age group finishes in the marathon. His most recent feat was to break 4:00 at the Toronto Waterfront Marathon at age 85.

We interviewed Ed about his world records, training, and philosophy of life on MTA podcast episode 195. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ed’s family. He was truly an inspiration to the entire running world!

    Are you sure it wasn’t prostate cancer?

    Anyway, he sounds like a marvelous man and runner.
