Short term goal: 17:59 5K
Mid term goal: 2:54:59 marathon
Long term goal: To say I've been a runner half my life. (I started running at age 45).
That's got to be the first time I've seen a 60m race come down to a finishing kick.
In the words of my late-coach : Just hang in there, relax... and at the end of a race anyone you see.....just pass them
Come from behind victory!
I think one is a gazelle and one is a glider...guess who won!

Kind of a slow starter but once he got those legs going there was no stopping him.
Shows what happens with fast turnover. Short steps, but lots of them.
I love sponge cake.
That was great. I can only hope I will be able to do that someday. Thanks, LtH.

They're so cute.
He toyed with him, it was in the bag the entire time. ; )

DON'T TREAD ON ME
These guys are fast man. I'm guessing that they are by some criteria better runners than anyone on this thread
I had to watch twice to make sure I wasn't one of the contestants.
OK, not quite yet, but give me 10-30 years and I WILL be in that race.
I will note that the skinny grandfather beat the somewhat heavier grandfather. But not by much!

Both of these guys were 90+ which shows that you don't have to stop just because you get older. Fits in very nicely with my long term running goal. There was a 90 year old who ran 6:35:47 in the Marshall University Marathon in Huntington, WV last year. It set a world record for 90 year old males. Maybe I can make it my goal to beat that time.
