And there goes any excuses I have for not hiking...

Congratulations! I hope I'm still up for all the 14ers at 68!
Still Here
been scared and battered. My hopes the wind done scattered. Snow has friz me, Sun has baked me,
Looks like between 'em they done Tried to make me
Stop laughin', stop lovin', stop livin'-- But I don't care! I'm still here!

Congrats from another sexagenarian finisher! And thanks formaking sure I don't set a record for oldest finisher.
I have been to the mountaintop, and I have seen the force
and the power that animates the universe. That may not
match up with your anthropomorphic or teleological idea of
what "god" is, but it's good enough for me.

Martin,
A hearty CONGRATULATIONS from another of the over 60 crowd though I'm just a kid at 61! I've been at it on and off for 29 years and just got #46 this week. Hope to finish in a couple more years.

All the best,
Dave
