I was at the local YMCA pool the other day and had just finished showering and dressing after a session in the pool.
As I came out of the locker room I ran into an acquaintance who often swims the same time as me. We engaged in small talk and the conversation moved towards triathlon training. I explained the concept of age group racing and told him that since I turn 60 next September, for racing purposes I will be in the 60 – 64 age group on January 1, 2010.
He looked me up and down and then commented, “I would never have guessed that you were much older than fifty!”
