Who says you are a veteran over 35?!

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?

You're old. Nature decides.

men don't become veterans until they're 40

but then we age better than women

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

I thought my inane childishness would keep me youthful!

i've noticed some races have a v35 category for women, some begin with v40.

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

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

That has got to be the oddest pic ever GD. I can't even to begin to work it out!

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...

anyway Dippycat welcome to the forum and yes the 305 is a fantastic bit of kit.

You shouldn't have to much trouble with the chest strap
