Double gold medalist

They posted the results from the 2008 Eastern Shore Senior Games, so it's official: I'm a gold medalist in my division (women 50-55) in the 5K run and in the 40k cycling road race.

Cool!

But somehow I thought it would feel more special.

Maybe it's because I was also DFL in my division in each event?

But I do like my first medal with a little cyclist on it. Even if it depicts a man riding a fixie.

Maybe it's a lady with muscular legs and her hair in a pony tail...
And who cares it you were DFL, you were still there and still earned a medal and there were thousands of women your age who chose to stay in bed those mornings! Congratulations!

Way to go! You did something that 99% of the rest of the people didn't do.

You're a great role model for your kids!

You win, you win!

I am competing in my first Tri this year with, to date, one other woman in my div. That might make me not be excited about a possible 1st place win except she and I are pretty evenly matched and she's already done Califorina 70.3 this year so I will have to put the pedal to the metal to beat her. So now I'm happy.

double gold? wow. cool. too bad they don't have a super size medal like you'd get if you did Rock n' Roll marys or the Goofy Challenge.

But your a gold medal winner and its an Olympic year. Can you say bragging rights?

Didn't you bring home a medal just a few weeks ago too.

At this rate you're going to look like Mr T before the end of the season!
