I wanna age up now!!

Maybe next year, when I am in the next AG, I can actually win a medal again-

How is it that I can take 4 min. off my time in a Sprint Triathlon-now 2 years older, and still finish in at least 5th place? Where have all these old women come from? I remember my first triathlon 7 years ago, Milkman-I was 46 years old and finished 2nd place in my AG. Oh, that is because there were only TWO women in my AG. Boy was I spoiled!! Two years ago, I took 6th place out of 12 in my AG at the race I did today. Today, faster and 2 years older, I still could not medal..I am having a full out pity party for myself:



No race report until the party is over...


Meanwhile, there are starving people in the world!

Congrats on getting faster! Keep it up & you will place no matter how many are in your AG.

Unfortunately everyone else is getting older and better also. I know the feeling. I just have to wait until maybe I am in the 75-79 age group.

Faster is good. Just being out there is good!

I am totally impressed by how fast you are. Does that count? I PR'd on the Santa Cruz 1/2 marathon but I would have had to be 70 to get an age group award (nope, wouldn't have won the age group, but I would have gotten a medal) Stupid hyper-fit Californians!

You are HUGE inspiration to me. I may never be as fast as you but I hope to be racing and looking 1/2 as FAB-U-LOUS as you when I reach that next age group!

Is there cake at the pity party? Can I come? Anxiously awaiting the race report :o)
