Veteran? Grrrr..

Race results are making me feel very old.  Looking at my recent race results I was not happy to find that at 37 I am classed as a veteran!!!!  I was so pleased with my times, but it put a real dampener on it to be described as what sounds like somebody who fought in the WW2.

 Anybody else feel the same way?  Who decides these labels? image

    i think it's quite funny to be a beginner veteran, or is that a veteran beginner? image

  • look on the bright side you can be 1st V35 if you are lucky !

  • Thanks for that guys! Feeling so much better now - an ancient old lady with no tits.  Hmm.  Suppose it is better to have no tits at my ripe old age than ones hanging down by my knees.  That would make for really uncomfortable running... image
