Neurosurgeon/triathlete still trucking at 70

Need a little inspiration to hit the gym or the running trail after work? Take a short break and watch this Wall Street Journal video profiling Joseph Maroon, MD, a 70-year-old neurosurgeon who competes in triathlons.

A team physician for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Maroon talks about how a period of depression following his father's death 20 years ago led him to start running and how he maintains his training routine despite a busy work schedule. He has competed in over 65 triathlons, including seven 140.6-mile Ironman races, and says, "At 70, quite honestly, I feel as good as I did when I was 40."
