NEVER TOO OLD

The caption for this picture would be, " Now you can walk 13 miles, can't you, Kate ?"

My older sister signed up, trained, and walked her first half marathon in January. Her time was 3:40:xx not bad for walking. She liked it so much that she decided she wanted to do another to celebrate her 70th birthday this year. She wanted her sisters to take part in this celebration, so we have all signed up for the Women's Half Marathon in St. Pete this November.

I am excited to be doing this with them. It was only two years ago when I did my first half at 65. I still remember how exciting that was to be racing with my daughters.

It just goes to show you that you're never too old to try something new. And hey you might even like it!

Oh so True! However, our baby sister still has not commited to the Nov. race. She has her hotel--which you helped her with but no race registration for her!

Hugs
Patty
