I turned 50 – Yeah, a new age division!

Friday was my 50th birthday and Saturday morning was my first 10k of the season.  Perfect timing.  I got to compete in the 50-54 year old division.  My first goal was to break 50 minutes and my second was to break 49 minutes.  I got close to the second with a 49:17.  The race was the Oak Apple Run in downtown Royal Oak, MI.  A well organized race in its 32nd year.  I’ve probably run it 25 times including the first one – and I have the 32 year old t-shirt to prove it.  I would have worn it this year but it apparently shrunk a little over the years.

It feels great to still be running after all these years.  I pray that God will keep me healthy to run for many years to come.
