not my Papa!
I mentioned to xangsters, my Papa is presently dealing with prostrate cancer (his surgery for a radical prostatectomy is set for June 12 in London).
Anyway, yesterday, Papa completed a half-marathon!! My Papa is 69 years old and his time for running 21 kms (13.1 miles) was 2:03:29. As a reference here, my usual time for a half-marathon is like 1:45:00 so – damn – bravo for Papa!
“I was hoping to get under two hours but there were two hills that I decided to walk up, otherwise I would have made it. It was very chilly at the start -3 Celsius but it quickly warmed up. I feel fine now, but I think the idea of a full marathon has disappeared. Just too much training. My running career may be over.”
