two gentlemen! One is aged 77 years and the other is 83.
Wife and I have joined a "Runners and Walkers Club. Amongst other things , they have an event every Sunday morning at 7AM - walkers do about a 5K circuit while runners do a 12K circuit -- different circuits each week. There are about 30 of them, half and half walkers and runners.
Wife took off with the walkers along the ocean front and I went with the runners along the riverside. They were just a bit quick for me - especially since the first K or so was uphill and the two old timers fell to the back of the pack. They were really a bit too slow for me - but I stuck with them and realised that , because I nearly always run alone, this was the first time that I had done a decent length run at a "conversational" pace - talking to them as we went along.
It was a great run and we will be back for more. The two decided to turn back at the 3 KLM mark giving them a 6K run - suited me fine as I had had a hardish run at parkrun yesterday.
Afterwards they made pancakes on the beach. My new Sunday running playground!
