hammer85: CSB: I used to do the hurdles my senior year in high school because at worst I'd get third place (got second once!), and team points were team points.Other coach to mine: Uhh...isn't that your two miler?*coach looks, shakes head and sighs*"Yes..."I never got to do the long and triple jumps because they always ran them during my two mile race :(
NoGods: I turned 50 last year and was hoping the competition in the 50-55 age group at 5 and 10 k races would be easier. It isn't. It's still fun to beat 30-year-olds though. I beat a 19-year-old soccer player in a small 5k this spring. I practice running hills and the last hill on this course wiped him out. The look on his face when a grey beard passed him was priceless.
puckrock2000: I ran a 5-miler last year (I'm 50 also) and my neighbor's 12-year-old kid beat me by 2 minutes.
