Then Sanchez started talking with Dr. Thomas Zinkle, a Kaiser psychologist and friend who is an avid ultramarathoner and booster of the sport.

...
So, Sanchez figured, "Hey, if Zinkle is 63 and can run 100 miles, why not me?"
...
What amazes Zinkle, the Kaiser doctor who first piqued Sanchez's interest, is his friend's doggedness.
"The general wisdom is that everybody expected he'd have lots of disasters, or crash and burn, because of lack of experience," Zinkle says.

Tom Zinkle, Ph.D., a psychologist with Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento, has seen hoarders for 30 years.He says some hoard for sentimental reasons, while others do it out of a kind of greed.Still others, experts say, see utility in everything and want to avoid any kind of waste.

"It's amazing how often there is a battle inside them," he says."They want to get rid of something, [but] they will leave and come back and they haven't done it.
"The neurotic thinking is that if they just hold on to things, life is somehow going to be safe," he says."But we never have everything we need.We can never be prepared for everything.And the healthy person trusts the fact that they'll find some way to cope or get by."
In his experience, Zinkle says, therapy helps only about 10 to 20 percent of hoarders improve. "This is a difficult population to work with.They are very often frustrated with themselves, they frustrate their families and they frustrate their therapists," he says.
