Went out today and ran The Chasing Tail 4 miler. It was a really fun, fun run. It was a First annual run for the Squatters Brew Pub. It was a rainy and cool morning (about 45* at the start) for the run but who cared, it was fun.  1st place in my old man 65 -69 age division and I was still only the second oldest guy there. The next oldest was a spry 92 years old....Believe it or not, Old 92 wasn't even the last runner in!!!!

Dang! I hope I can even walk when I'm 92. Congrats on the hardware!

Congratulations on the AG win. Somehow I believe you'll still be running at 92.
