Extremely useful. Unfortunately it says that I still need to run the Marathon in 4:47 plus change to get the (age-adjusted) family record. My brother ran a 4:15 at age 15.

How inspiring! I wanna be that 100 y/o HMer!!
I've been waiting for the old fast women to stop running (or get slow) for 10 years (I'm 51 and they're still out there beating me!). Maybe 100 is my number... emoticon

Jean-I'm sure if you run a HM when you're 100, they will stay open for you! There is a man that used to do the Iron Man WI and he was at least in his 70's. He wouldn't finish till around midnight, but they kept it open just for him. Not sure if he still does it or not, but I remember seeing a story a few yrs ago about him.

SOME INTERESTING STATS... Well, I think they are....

from www.runbayou.com - age-graded performance

My fastest mile (so far) is 10:13

When I plug this number into the age graded calculator it says that I am...
53.93% of the top standard for someone my age (63) - an average runner for my age.

If I were competing in an open age bracket (a race that adjusts time based on one's age) my 10:13 time would be adjusted to 7:40.

The best time for someone my age for 1 mile is 5:30.

To run at the same performance percentage when I am 65 I could run the mile in 10:27.
When I am 70 it would be 11:11
When I am 80 - 13:16
When I am 90 - 17:25
When I am 100 - 42:17 (lots of leeway - if I am running when I am 100.

If I were 20 - the same performance would be - 7:39

****

My next HM goal time (not yet accomplished is 2:41:31

This would be 52.55% of the top standard for someone my age (still about average).

The best HM performance for someone that is 63 is 1:24:52 (pretty impressive).

If I were 100 years old to perform at the same percentage of the top standard I could take 10 hours and 13 minutes.

So, when I am 100, I will have to find a half marathon where the course stays open for a really long time!!!!
