When author Joe Sinclair turned sixty-two years old, he began his quest to run as many marathons as possible. Less than five years later, he has logged more than four thousand miles, participating in more than 150 marathons. In his memoir, Putting Life on the Finish Line, he tells his life story from his early years through his late sixties and details how he achieved his running goals.
Sinclair shares running’s rewards and challenges—crossing the finish line at the toughest marathon in America run entirely on asphalt; completing three marathons in three days in the hot July weather; fighting off attacks by vicious dogs during a lonely, rural, mountain marathon; and helping a struggling young marathoner achieve his very first marathon finish.
Offering personal secrets for success, tips and tricks, nutritional and fitness plans, pre-race plans, and inspiring stories, Putting Life on the Finish Line provides encouragement for those who believe they are too old to accomplish a dream. It shows that personal health and fitness is attainable at any age.

Throughout my life, I have constantly been told that I was either too young or too old to achieve a goal that I had set for myself. With determination, sacrifice, and a total commitment to achieve success, I have been very fortunate to complete over 160 marathons after I reached my 62nd birthday. Running over four thousand miles of competitive races in my mid-sixties has been a goal that very few people expected me to do. More important is the fact that I take great pride in helping others to begin their walking and running programs. The book Putting Life on the Finish Line offers personal secrets for success, tips, and tricks, nutritional and fitness plans, pre-race plans, and inspiring stories for others to enjoy.
