The Shakeout Podcast: Lessons in Ageing

Masters women defy age and gender norms

Lyndsay Tessier and Catherine Watkins have established themselves as two of Canada’s best marathon runners. Both of these women set Canadian Masters records at the Berlin Marathon in September. At ages 40 and 47 respectively, they are defying age norms by running nationally competitive personal best times later in life.

In this episode, new host and producer Kate Van Buskirk talks with Lyndsay and Catherine about blurring the lines between being an ‘elite athlete’ and being a ‘masters athlete’. Along with physiologist Trent Stellingwerff, they offer their advice on how you, too, can get the most out of yourself, regardless of your age.
