☆ old age 老齢
Have you thought about old age and what do you want to do during this time? What age is “old age” for you? Do you have an idea of how long you’d like to live? I do! As you might know I love running marathons and intend to keep running them in my old age. A few years ago, a man who was 100 years old completed a marathon. I was so impressed that I made this a goal for me!
Amazingly, a 91 year old woman recently completed a marathon in the US and became the fastest woman in the 90-94 age group to finish a marathon. Her time was 7:07:42. Wow!! Last year, my friend ran the Honolulu marathon in the 35-39 age group and finished in 7:19:25. Yep, the 91 year old woman finished 12 minutes faster than someone half her age. I bet she doesn’t even think she has reached “old age” yet!!
These days people really do amazing things in their old age!
