Southern California Half Marathon ...... Goodbye AG

Last Sunday I bid goodbye to my AG(65-69) by running the KP Southern California Half Marathon.  With 4000 participants, it's one of the biggest low profile event in Southern California. About  50% of the participants are high school and middle school students from the Orange and Los Angeles Unified Schools. It had the atmosphere of a high school athletic event with coaches, trainers, boosters and tents.  Nice to see these enthusiastic youngsters up this early.

It's been a great running year for me and what a way to bid goodbye to AG (65-69).

Last AG Year Performance:
1. Set 10K PR at 53min:47sec
 2. Set Half Marathon PR at 2hr:01min:54sec and 2 Podium Finishes
 3. 3 Full Marathons within 90 days and qualified for the Marathon Maniac Bronze Membership

 My Credo:
 1. No Training Short Cut or Substitute.
 2. Patience will take me to my Running Goals
 3. No Pain Killer or PED
