This is my excuse for being slower than last year when I was a youthful 65: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/03/well/move/running-age-declines-slower.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Fhealth&action=click&contentCollection=health®ion=stream&module=stream_unit&version=latest&contentPlacement=21&pgtype=sectionfront

Joan Benoit Samuelson just finished the Chicago Marathin in 3:11 at 61.

Just sayin’....

I just had my best year ever on my bike (after 30 years of riding). Admittedly a lot was simply due to volume, but my performance definitely increased substantially. I also feel that my run can still get faster and haven’t year reached my peak there...but I also came to running late, so that makes some sense.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Greatness in our midst.

She had a kid after winning the first olympic women's marathon and suffered a common problem after childbrirth: sacroiliac laxity and pain, which knocked her out of top marathoning. Such a pleasure to read that she is back as an elder stateswoman. And as always a class act.

Just Wow!
