Robert Garza

At the age of 39, Robert finished his first marathon in 1984. He ran in the NYC Marathon the following year, but eventually had to reduce his mileage because of a lingering pain in his back. This past summer, he was thrilled to find a therapy that has alleviated his pain. He immediately signed up for next week's Houston Marathon. Robert will be happy to finish but really wants to win his age group. Today, at the age of 72, he is an inspiration to those who think they may never be able to run again
