Bette Davis once said: "Growing old is not for sissies." Damn straight!
After participating in the Chase Corporate Challenge Race last night (a three mile foot-powered excursion through the streets of Boston) I totally agree! I am humbled, sissified and sore... not to mention I probably had 25 years or more on most of the participants!
I did, however, finish the race and I wasn't the last one to the finish line (though not really in the same half hour as this guy) - and I got a cool t-shirt and contributed to charity besides. Though there was probably a reason most of the people my age were working the first aid or cheering sections... Sissies!
