The 52 year old best-selling author is a crazy competitive runner

Malcolm Gladwell, author of popular books such as Outliers and The Tipping Point, is no stranger to running – and running fast.

While growing up in Ontario, Canada, Gladwell was one of the fastest teens running the 1500-meter race. Many years later, he is still competitive in his age group and a huge fan of the running sport. It is clear that Gladwell loves everything about competitive running, and still makes time to train hard in his 50s.

Check out Malcolm Gladwell’s amazing mile time here:

Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point and other best-selling nonfiction books, ran 5:03 at Sunday’s Fifth Avenue Mile in New York. It was his third consecutive appearance at the race.

Gladwell, 53, placed ninth in the men’s 50-54 age group, which was won by Gerald O’Hara in 4:46. According to race organizers New York Road Runners, Gladwell’s time is the equivalent of a man in his 20s or early 30s running 4:21.

………………..Gladwell is a strong fan of elite racing. During last month’s IAAF World Championships, he revealed on The New Yorker‘s website that he has a photo of 1500-meter world champion Asbel Kiprop as a screensaver on his phone.
