Meet six champions who are getting better with age

Colleen de Reuck, Marathoner

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.”
