Oklahoma City Marathon
For me the absolute highlight of the run is meeting up with my wife, daughter and grand kids along the route and having them waiting at the finish line for a quick hand slap and on through. It's awesome to have a group willing to get up at 5:00 in the morning to cheer you on. Thank you guys!
I need to acknowledge one young lady along the route. As we cleared mile 20 we heard the 3:40 pace runner coming up behind use. We were both suffering from the wall and needed something drive our pace home. I made a simple comment that I wasn't going to let him pass me, she chuckled and said she was thinking the same thing. For the next 6 miles we locked in on an 8:00 pace as we locked step to the finish. Neither was going to allow our new found running partner to fail. As we approached the finish line, we wished each other luck and went on our own paths to celebrate our runs.

One thing I've learned, being a senior doesn't keep you from going out and doing awesome things. It's only you're attitude that will keep you from doing those things. Take the first steps today and start living a more active lifestyle.
