Who Can Keep Up with Joan?

Who Can Keep Up with Joan?

If you can catch up with Joan McLaughlin Boetcher ’58, then you’ve accomplished quite a feat.

Boetcher is a woman on the go. She has shown Quarter horses and raced Hobie Cat sailboats. She bicycles throughout Europe and runs marathons. All at age 71.
Competitive sports have always been a part of her life. It was something she could do away from her teaching job and still get the exercise she enjoyed, she said.

Even in retirement, Boetcher is not slowing down. Last March, she ran a marathon in Rome and won her age group. In October, she also won her age group at the Army Ten-Miler marathon in Washington D.C.
