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.
