What keeps him competing after all these years?

“Part of that changing it up all the time. It’s what’s helped keep me motivated at my age to keep running these competitive races, to continue to train hard year in and year out and thats always kinda helped me to stay motivated,” King said.

This was King’s second time taking the title. He won it in 2018.

Will he try again next year. King says absolutely.
