I know the times are not spectacular. But many of these tracks were hilly or even mountainous, or going through snow or sand. I run more for the scenery than for a result.
Honestly, many of these races were just a pretext to travel to new places. In the future, I will therefore mainly run in cities and countries that I haven’t visited yet.
Wow, how great that you travel to so many places to run. Good luck this weekend!
I take off my hat to you for all you’ve accomplished. As in regards with the 70 year old seniors passing you by on the run, you may watch this: http://www.ted.com/talks/christopher_mcdougall_are_we_born_to_run.html
He is quoting a study done in the university of Utah by tracking finishing times of people running the marathons. They found out that if you start running the marathon at age 19, you’ll get progressively faster year by year until you reach your peak age 27; and then after that you get slower and slower until eventually you get back to the same speed you were at age 19. However it takes you 45 years to go back to the same speed at age 19. i.e. 64 year old men and women are as fast as they were were at age 19! and then he goes on to provide his explanation and theory about that…
Anyway another well done and I wish you all the bests in your next runs

Que interesante! corres mucho, a mi lo que me gustaba mas de correr, era sentir el pulso a full! en mis venas, después sentir como iba bajando gradualmente y como sabe el agua en ese momento. Que bueno felicidades!
Gracias! Después de una pausa large, tengo que reasumir correr medio maratones.
