USA Outdoor Masters Championships
« on: July 22, 2014, 12:59:08 pm »
USATF Outdoor Masters Championships were last weekend. PVTC, the club that organized the meet I participated in a couple weeks ago, finished fifth overall in the team standings and had seven individual national champs and one team championship (M70 4x100). One of them was the M60 winner in the 200 -- he ran 24.32 to beat his own American record! 24.32! He's 60 years old!

That's some inspiring shit.

Full results here:

T0ddday, are you 30 yet? The M30 national champ only ran 10.97. The field is relatively small because it's all amateurs (obviously). Hell, if I can get to high-11s and maintain that until I'm 30 I could make the finals. I'm less than three years away.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
