  1. I just read that article early today. More power to her. I can’t even do that now. I hope to be half that fit if I even make it to that age.

  2. I admire her too. I saw her at the Lifetime Fitness Triathlon today. When she lined up to start the swim, I didn’t know who she was, but she was clearly old. The other athletes in her age category (60+) made a point of saying hello to her. Then while I was watching some runners come in, I spoke with a friend of hers, a woman who was probably in her 50s. She said that Mary had inspired her to start running. Someone participates with her (her son?) and he always gets penalties for drafting, but he drafts behind her to protect her from other bikers so that they don’t run into her. Later I saw Mary run in and the spectators just let out a big whoop for her. It was hot and she was amazing!
