If there was one safety tip you had to offer other runners/cyclists/swimmers, what would it be?

  1. #dailymission First and foremost, watch out for cars, 'cause they sure as hell aren't looking out for you. But... if it, heavens forbid, happens, GET INSURANCE INFORMATION! Even if you do... read more

      Nice job with the no walking in your first marathon. My first (only so far) marathon included LOTS of walking...

  4. #dailymission I won a 5K race for females and was 8th overall. I have won a few 2miler races in my age group and a 5miler in my age group. I would love to place in a half or a full in the future ... read more

      Isn't that so cool when the training and persistence pays off! Even when I don't get a medal the PR makes me just as happy! I do find the long the race...the tougher to place! :) I guess it makes us work harder! You can do it!

      I always seem to land in the middle. Evidently there are a lot of fast 50+ year old women, too!

      Old runners age slower than old people generally. Ask your local doctor or dentist.
