  • great job, keep up the great work. I'm very impressed! - by TURBO_TURTLE60
  • 47 minutes is GREAT time for solid walking! That is almost a mile every 15 minutes, and unless you have 6'long legs, that takes some serious moving! I mostly walk, but can manage some 'trotting' through the course, and my best time is just over 40 minutes. I am 65, and usually medal for my age group also. I got a gold in yesterday's 5K as I was the only girl over 60. This is only my 3ed year doing events, and I have an entire collection of the awards from the 18 events I did last year, including 2 half marathons. I love the rush these things give me, and bringing home a medal is just the icing on the cake! Keep up the EXCELLENT work, it will help keep you young! - by PEDAL-PUSHER
