the issue of age

A day or so after seeing speed in perspective I had dinner with a group of people at the High Noon restaurant in Old Town. Nobody at the table except Robert knew I had started running. A friend of mine mentioned casually that her mother had run the New York marathon at 65.

Here I go, thinking that starting at 41 is a big deal. My effort felt insignificant again.
