An interview with the 50, fat, diabetic, ahead of you guy (Read 457 times)

    After the picture went viral, the original photographer tracked the runner down and did an interview.

      Heh, heh.  When I'm 65, maybe I'll get a shirt made that says, "Really?  You can't beat a 65 year old guy?"

      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).

            I'm liking this idea a lot, Brad! Wouldn't it work nearly as well if it said a 58 year old guy? LOL

              He's 50? I think he looks awful. I'm 58. My DH is almost 60, is diabetic, and looks a millions times better.

                Well, I didn’t really start this thread to be combative, LOL. My husband is 63 and looks 45 if a day.

                    I'd hit it.  I think I got those same shorts too.
