    This story makes my happy

    90 year old guy sets the nation record for the 20K time trial in his age category at Mission Bay.


    The story:

    I like this because:

    1. I just got an invitation to join the AARP in the mail. I hope I am still on a bike at 90.
    2. I now know that there is at least one racer in the world I can smoke.

    I met him many years ago at one of the Scripps Ranch Old Pro rides on July 4th. Great guy!

    I met Gordy when he was a college counselor at the school I was going to!! He was just a recreational rider at the time, but once he retired, he started training and racing pretty much full time. I want to be like him when I grow up!!

    On the same thought, there was a story on MSNBC about a 101 yr old man that ran in the London Marathon this past weekend. I LOVE his hydration strategy!!

    I saw that story on saturday when i got back from a ride in Chula Vista/Coronado/downtown and though what a coincidence. It was the first time i rode in the area, and i was on a bikepath and bridge that was named after him. http://www.signonsandiego.com/uniont...m9bikeway.html
    It was a nice ride up till the end when i crashed and went down hard.

    I hope to be long dead when I'm 90. There is no way I'll have any money left by then...or 80 for that matter.
