Accelerate at Any Age
The One Mile Runner

David O’Meara inspires athletes of all ages to learn how to maximize their speed, explosion, strength, endurance, and flexibility, while also preventing injury. These attributes are essential to achieving peak performance in any competitive sport. David uses his personal experience as a coach, personal trainer and competitive runner to evaluate exercises, techniques and products to help high-performance athletes exceed their performance goals.

In his fifties, David has proven that he can consistently run a sub-5 minute mile. But running 12 mph is not something you just wake up and accomplish without a lot of help. It takes special equipment, proper nutrition, and an understanding of how your body changes. David relies on a team of seven consultants to help him research, understand, and address the changing demands of his body. He has invited his personal consultants to share some of their unique health & fitness ideas via his blog. And to help you achieve your goals, these consultants are available to answer your questions.

When David turned 45 in 2008, he celebrated with an event. It was personal challenge; a feat of speed. He was going to run 20 one-mile road races, in 20 weeks, in 20 different cities throughout the United States and Canada... each under 5 minutes. It was an experience of a lifetime.

For the next four years, David developed and accomplished new personal, professional, and athletic challenges documenting his adventure on his blog with training and event videos.

In 2018, when he turns 55, David plans to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of his first event with a new event called 5/5/5<5@55. That's 5 one-mile races in 5 weeks in 5 different cities all under 5 minutes at 55 years old. David will continue to share how he trains, prepares, races and recovers on his Blog.
