Kyle M Case & Lil Barron

Today’s guest is John Ouweleen, a former New Jersey State Police Trooper who says he stayed active because of his job, but his later athletic achievements went well beyond that. In 2006, at the age of 66, he ran his first marathon and won his age group. Ouweleen has since completed 34 marathons, including 12 Boston Marathons, where he achieved 1st place in 2014 and 2019 in his age group. And that’s just the marathons. 

In addition, he holds 8 USATF Masters National age group titles in half marathons and 15K races and has won USATF Florida male Masters Athlete of the Year. In 2019 (just last year), Ouweleen tried his hand for the first time in track events, including at the Huntsman World Senior Games, and the success just continued. On top of all of that, John is on our list of the fittest 50 over 50.

Kyle and Lil share acknowledge the national obesity rate is on the rise, but share some thoughts on how to arrest the expansion.
