Meet six champions who are getting better with age

Colleen de Reuck, Marathoner

— Scott McDermott

Colleen de Reuck, 46
Marathon Runner

“I can still run fast,” confirms de Reuck, of Boulder, Colorado, one of America’s best marathon runners. At 41, de Reuck ran a sparkling 2:29 marathon, an age-group record that has yet to be threatened. In the spring of 2010, she briefly ranked as the top female marathon runner in the nation. Not the top age-group racer, mind you, but the top racer, period. “Sometimes it’s a bit surprising to me to be training or racing and see these younger runners behind me. I think, ‘Shouldn’t they be up ahead?’ ” de Reuck says. “But I’m quite pleased, of course, to be in front.”
