One of my New Year's Resolutions was to walk 5 miles a week. For the last 4 weeks I have kept that goal. In fact last week I walked 9 miles because Mary and I did a 4 mile walk in Flushing Michigan. Mary came in 3rd in her age group. I came in 4th in mine. As we were walking and about 20 feet from the finish, a 90 year old man came up behind us. Mary said she wasn't going to be passed by anyone 90 so she poured on a final burst of steam. I decided to let him feel good and pass me( I didn't have any steam left).
