Eileen Coogan Boyle – 50th Birthday News

Eileen is marking her 50th birthday by running a 50 kilometer trail run in April. Then, she plans to climb Mt. Rainer in August five days after her birthday. “I didn’t really start running till after I turned 40, and now it is my favorite activity outside of work and nagging my 16-year-old to do his homework. I’ve run a couple dozen half marathons, and 5 marathons….I prefer to do unusual races and different kinds of challenges rather than try to just be faster. So (I) got into the trail runs which I just love. I’m in “training” now for the 50k and looking forward to that, after which the serious training for Mt Rainier will start.”
