Quote Of The Day
“It is still very satisfying to compete at a reasonable level nationally. The streak also gives me something to aim for. I’m never going to set a personal best again, but I’m proud of the fact people are now starting to follow and talk about the streak. When I was in my 30s lots of people said I was too old and it was time to retire, but I enjoy the fact I am still here proving them wrong.”
” … I don’t feel 42. I’m still lifting heavy weights in the gym, my plyometrics are still good. I would find it difficult to give up athletics to play basketball or golf or something social. I just wouldn’t attack it in the same way. It is still a challenge, quite addictive.”
