Here we go again!

Post by haggis basher on Mon Aug 31, 2015 3:34 am

Hi All
Had booked to go to Adelaide (South Australia) for the Masters games the first week in October 2015, but got some bad news - I have a large 'Melanoma' on my forehead, which is being operated on on the 17/10/15, which puts me out for traveling to the games. Having just turned 75 age, (75 - 79 group), I was hoping to do well. Did 10min 03 for 2km x-country, and 21min 47secs for 4km x-country recently.
Looks like my good looks will be gone forever, In the future, I will be a 'marked' man! (LOL)
See Yaas
Brian

So sorry to learn about that, Brian. I hope they get it all out with clean margins. Too bad about missing the Masters games. Best wishes for quick and full recovery. Keep us posted on how you're doing.

Good luck and let us know how it goes. Just remember scars are tattoos with better stories.

Just ran a 5km fun run, where proceeds went to the 'research' at our local hospital. Weather very hot - but glad spring is here. Ran well under control, doing 29min 30 secs, which put me 1st in over 60's (me 75). Came 49th out of 175! Slow early, and striding out last 1km.
Nice to realize how reasonably fit I am. Having operation in 4 days, so fitness will help with healing!
You must all be getting excited - not far away from your running gathering.
See Yaas

Hi All
Had my melanoma operation on my forehead last Thursday 17th Sept, had over 60 stitches put in! Actually had them taken out today. Looks a bit of a mess, I suppose I will now have to rely on my 'personality' rather than my looks! Shocked
See Yaas
Brian

PS NO training for 3 weeks - help! Sad

Having a hole in your head should be a good conversation starter.

Recover quickly.

Hi All
Back on the boards again! I am really amazed how my forehead is healing. I actually ran a 5km x-country with my team last Sunday in 32min 50. the weather was 'stinking' hot. Had to walk up one very steep hill.
Glad to hear about all your exploits in the Heart weekend, and in the Global Heroes. I think with my age, next year would be my last chance of a 'Hero' run!
See Ya All
Brian Rolling Eyes

Started training to cover 10mile run by April, to qualify for Global Hero Run (if selected!) I don't know whither they would take anyone my age! (76 next year!). Anyone got any idea?
See Ya
Brian

I don't know why they wouldn't consider a 76 YO Brian. When you get ready to apply let us know. I'm sure several of our Global Heroes members will offer advice on how to increase your chances for selection.

There was a 76 year old from Dayton, Ohio there this year. Only one older than me.
I suspect they have had more Ohioans than any other state. I don't know if that says something for their health, their tenacity, or their sanity. I think almost everyone from Ohio has been a heart patient.

Thanks everyone for kind words. Slight hiccup, damn back gone! (bulging disk)They want to inject 'cortisone' into nerve in lumbar area - not too keen, but...
Turned from runner into shuffler.(LOL) Isn't it strange, some of us will go to any length to keep going.
Think photos of Global Team were terrific, everyone seemed to glow with health and happiness.
