    Geezer Tribute Thread. :p 66 year old Mark Thompson finishes 22nd in Daytona 500

    Geezer Tribute Thread.


    No one in the Daytona 500 field was even born when Mark Thompson graduated high school. He started last (40th) and finished 22nd. He completed 203 of 207 laps and was still running at the end. Hmm; not bad.

    At 53, I, full out, ran down to the creek chasing a dog we were sitting. It's a good 100 yrds. In Crocks. Then I walked back at a brisk pace to get my truck to look for the little $#@!er. I'm a smoker and a drinker. Olympic worthy? No. But, considering I haven't full out run for 100 yrds in over 30 years, not too damn bad.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    Lucky you didn't pull or tear your hamstring. Very common when people who don't run try to run. Don't even have to be old. I was doing sprints at a track a couple of years ago (it was popular a few years ago for workouts). A fairly young couple (late 20s?) saw me and decided to try. The woman got about 5 steps before pulling up with a hamstring pull. Had to gingerly limp away...

    Pro-tip: accelerate slowly, don't pretend to be an Olympic sprinter.

    66 ya say..

    still hope then.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Yeah, they'll argue over roads and religion, but there are certain themes that bind, among those are freedom and the search for truth and justice.

    no $#@!

    I was surprised to hit 30,, I really did not expect to..

    that was thirty years ago,, and I was old at 20.

    still running,, ain't leakin' and have no idea when I get to go home.

    some laps on a track would be great fun though. I'm starting to have serious concerns of lasting till 100.
