2016 Florida Senior Games

2016 Florida Senior Games Track & Field schedule
Today’s schedule of events.

 

The 2016 Florida Senior Games at Lake Minneola High School begin in two hours.

Need to leave home in an hour to get there 30-minutes before the Shot Put.

No need to warm up.

Haven’t thrown since that one time a few months ago, when i just wanted to establish whether or not i could throw in the 30-foot range.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Florida Senior Games 2016 are tomorrow, Father’s Day.

Minneola High School is roughly 30 minutes away. Easy peasy.

Shot Put is usually one of the first events. Hoping to be finished before it gets scorching hot.

Purchased a Shot Put, Discus, and Javelin six months ago.

In the past 40 years, i have thrown the Shot Put once – at the High School track a month ago.

Tomorrow will be the second time.

Dream Big. Get There. Stay There!

Medaled both events
Bronze

Dream big. Get there. Stay there. You CAN do it! If you want to. But you must be prepared to take the long way. It’s the only short cut.

By the way, I’m not talking about you earning medals. I’m talking about you getting and staying healthy.

Utah’s Snow Canyon High School Hosted The Track & Field Senior Games

Some of the younger athletes in the 55-59 age group 800 meters

It’s still challenging for me to get my arms around the notion that this world competition is only for “old people”, and that I am one of those old people. Age means nothing, really, unless we make it mean something. We can make aging mean wisdom. We can make aging mean decline. One of my “secrets” to great middle-age health is a great midlife attitude.

  2. To showcase jeff noel’s efforts to get & stay healthy as an over-5o adult
  3. To network with the senior health and wellness industry
