The club whose events I raced at a couple of times last year just one the 2015 national masters T&F championships, beating out SoCal (suck it T0ddday) for the gold!

Look at the list of PVTC's individual and relay winners and do two things: (1) bow before the superior dedication of your elders and (2) take inspiration from the fact that you never, ever have to stop training hard and trying to get better. even when you're 90.

PVTC's team won the 2015 USATF Masters Indoor Track & Field Championships, held March 20-22 at JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem NC.

The 90-99 4x800 is the first one ever fielded, as far as they know. That is insane. People older than my living grandparents. Who cares that it was at a pace that for me would be a fast walk?!? That is insane! They're in their NINETIES!
