I've been looking over my race results of the last four Cops For Cancer half marathons.  It's true, you're only as old as you feel!  Here's the numbers to prove it.

Stats don't lie... you really do improve with age!  I'm 58 seconds faster now than I was in 2007.  At this rate I'll qualify for Boston by 2027!
It's a good day to be alive (and kicking).
