Women Ultrarunners Age Like Fine Wine

Impressive!  My best race, when about 45, was a 50 miler at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley.  Ten five mile loops on a dead flat course.  6:17.45.  About a 7:32 mile pace.  …Most recent effort, age 76, was a 25:45 5K with an 8:18 mile pace.   Not fine wine. Still enjoyable.

25:45 today in the Couples 5K. Results. Oldest in the race. 22 seconds slower than my best last year on a faster course.  I’m thrilled, motivated, and 77 next month.
