June 27, 2009 Walk a Half marathon at age 71 with COPD

Posted Jun 27 2009 9:03pm

The continental divide was beautiful, sunshine-hot-walk for 13.1 miles ... too tired to write, but I did finish the half Marathon in 3:;30:48. It is possible - using lots (20 Liters) of oxygen, and this was my 3rd Slacker-highest half marathon in the US. Walking with running events is catching on with folks using oxygen. There was another gal there back packing a compressed gas cylindar end who congratulated me, says she will do it next year using a stroller to carry the heavy O2. she had an excellent reason not to do it today...her foot was in a cast. hope all of you had a lovely Saturday. keep moving it may be tiring but it helps.roxlyngcd@comcast.net
