I mentioned in my Sparkmail that I live in New Mexico but don't think I mentioned where. I live in Silver City, which is a small town about 90 miles north of the Mexico border in the southern part of the state.
We could to the virtual training! I haven't run in almost a month because of family crisis and a lot of other things and need so badly to get back into it again. How do you want to do it? I haven't worked with a virtual training partner before but it sounds awesome and I'm open to whatever.
I'm not sure of the date yet but it will probably be in April locally, then state games here are usually in late June or July. I have to talk to the local coordinator soon and make sure she lets me know. The local games are really small because it's a small town and so it's really easy to qualify for state. But last year I never saw anything in the paper or notificatifications so I'm going to have to track it down and find out. I want to do the 10k this time.
I would like to do the senior games in New Mexico this year although I doubt I'll qualify for the national championships. I was going to participate once I turned 50 in something but then never did and in February I'll be 57. I did do the local competition 2 years ago but things came up and and I didn't get to go to state. When I was in my 40's I worked at a job where I helped coordinate the local games and went to the state games to help out a numer of times. So awesome to see so many people over 50 being so active. Especially some of the 80 and 90 year olds I saw! Good luck to you!
Hey guys! I am fixin' to get ready to start training for the California state championships in Palo Alto in March. I am going to compete in the 10K and hopefully qualify for the 2013 Senior Olympics in Ohio. Anybody else fixin' to get ready for senior games in 2012 in your state? I could use a Sparky PANIC BUDDY !!!! hahahaha! : D
