I ran a mile over my age 3 years ago. Hoping to do that again in the next couple of years. I tried last year but didn't make it. My nephew just did it this spring, but he's in his 20s, so it just took a marathon.

I don't really care if I never shoot a round of golf under my age. I'd just like to live as many years as my typical 18 hole score is right now!

We had lunch in Deale on the waterfront. When I got home I ran up an extra 13 miles around town to fill out my age. When I get to about 75-80 I'm thinking I will switch to metric
Way to go Don!
You've inspired me to push my boundary some - I've gone 55 earlier this year - I'm 59 though. I'm going to try to go for 59 and 1 extra for good luck this week. hopefully I'll survive and be able to continue this as a yearly tradition. (:-D)

Fall hit early. We are having picture perfect weather this week. Low humidity, early morning lows in the upper 50s/60s, highs around 80. Heaven. We have another long ride planned for tomorrow.

Insider joke from T-Al. In addition to riding your age you are supposed to have pie at some point on the ride. I don't like pie. I opted for a Good Humor bar.

I always thought the goal of ANY bicycle ride was to consume ice cream at some point along the route!

I did a 64 today my longest ever - I owe it to a Cleveland dog (cole slaw) fries and root beer.

Way to go Don. I did not see what the big deal was when I read your post. I also thought that you meant a motorcycle.

Thanks. I should have used the term cyclist instead of biker. I think the motorized crowd owns that term.
