Amazing race

FOF and crossing the finish line

Maybe if I was forced to run for my life, I’d be able to work up enough steam to save myself.  Otherwise, I can probably run three, maybe four blocks, before collapsing.

My son, Colby, finished in the top half of a 15K (9.3 miles) race today. Needless to say, his stamina and showing impressed me. I was even more impressed by an FOF woman who finished before Colby. I snapped her picture while I was waiting at the finish line. Sunglasses perched atop her head and wearing only a thin white jacket in 27-degree weather, she looked pretty nifty.

When Colby sent me the race stats, I checked how many FOF women finished: 52 from 50-54; 34 from 55-59; 20 from 60-64; 7 from 65-69; 1 from 70-74; 0 from 75-79 and 1 from 80-84.

I offer my congratulations to every one of the 115 FOF women finishers, and, of course, to Colby.  I wish I had stayed around to see the gal who is in her eighties.

I was too darn cold.

    Wow wow wow Congrats Colby. You have accomplished something very special. We are in awe. To the women over 50 I say, “You are so fabulous you deserve an award. But you already have one. It’s called,”You!”
