Blog Break – Words of Wisdom from the West

I’m taking a deep breath with a blog break, but leaving you with some words of wisdom from the woman who once again placed first in my age group (AG65-69) at the Boston Marathon in April, Blondie Vucich of Vail, Colorado.  Her words of wisdom:

Not to give in to the thought that just because you’re getting older you know you can’t compete, you can’t compete on a high level or you can’t compete on any level. It really is amazing when you set goals for yourself and you go after them, and it’s kind of fun to keep chalking up the years.

Although Blondie’s advice is directed to older runners, it can apply to so many aspects of life. I’m pondering that on my break.
