Biographical and Professional Information

Brent Bohlen has been a prosecutor, a budget analyst, a utilities regulator and legal counsel for a taxpayer organization. But most of all, he has been an athlete. From the time in the third grade when he joined the junior high track team until his knees forced him to give up basketball for the final time in his early 50s, he was involved in organized sports. He thought his competitive days were over until he discovered racewalking, an activity that was kind to his body but as challenging as any sport he had done previously. Bohlen felt compelled to share his racewalking experience with fellow baby boomers. His book, ''BoomerWalk'' is the result.
