    "But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep."  Robert Frost

      What are these people doing wandering onto the track in front of runners?

      PBs since age 60:  5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.

                                          10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.

       

        some were painful to watch.  but I wish I could read about that hurdle race where the guy just plowed through the hurdles without regard to his lane.  that amused me.
