Running – What’s in a Number Anyway

Turning 52 years old, I figured the days of logging  Personal Records were a thing of the past.  Running faster seemed like a dream from days gone bye.  BUT then…over a three week span from November 6th to the 24th #BOOM #BOOM #foundthefountainofyouth #bottlethisstuff

UPDATE: the streak continues.  If your counting at home, that’s five PRs in a row.

[Tweet “What’s in a number, turning 52 didn’t stop @cledawgs from scoring PRs in 3 back2back2back races!”]

Age is just a number we use to let the rest of the world know how long we have been on this planet.  Do not let it define you, limit you or keep you from following your dreams!
