For some reason I can't do this on my work computer but I do have a funny story. I was probably about 42 years old (45 now). I was running a 5K race and I was a pretty big boy. Probably 230 or so at the time. I'm about 3/4 of the way through the race and I hear "clop, clop, click, clop, clop, click", and I'm thinking "What the heck is that?"
Soon enough I find out. It's a guy who's in his 70's who looks pretty doggone fit running with a cane.
He passed me.
I actually didn't care as I finished the race which was my goal. I did run a 10K a few months later and saw him about halfway where I passed him. I talked to him in both races and he was very supportive of my running and glad to see that I passed him the second time around.
