Today we have a picture of reader Ollie Nanyes and a short but sweet caption.

This is me finishing the Steamboat 15K footrace in Peoria, IL this June. My recreational activities include fitness activities and going to sporting events (football, basketball (men and women), baseball and softball (women).

    Well done Ollie for staying active. Semper Fortis, but mind the knees!

      Ah..yes, there was a time when I did judged racewalking but the right knee doesn’t straighten any longer. So it is “approximate” running and powerwalking for me.

      Here I was attempting to run.

    That’s good stuff. Keep up the good work. I do a lot of walking but no longer run. It all helps.

      I walk too, but at a much slower rate than I once did.

    Good job Ollie! Your activities sound a lot like mine. I am looking for a couple of decent 70+ basketball players to compete in the national 3 o 3, so send them my way if you ou know any ๐Ÿ™‚

      LOL…sure would. Did you see Julius Erving dunking while in his 60’s? He is a bit of an outlier though..
