It doesn't seem like it was yesterday
Here are some things I have remembered for four decades:

On Thanksgiving I ran in the 3rd annual Flying Turkey 5K, which is held along Evanston's lakefront. They give you a special button if you can beat the guy dressed like a turkey, but he's too fast.
It was a great course, and while it was cold for spectating (25 degrees) it was great for running. I finished second in my age group with a 23:15 time, about 30 seconds faster than last year. My coach (Heather Collins) specializes in coaching old people. Or at least she should.

Every year as many of my family members as can make visit Skaneateles to visit Mom (97 this year) and enjoy one last week of summer recreation.
For those who aren’t content to just enjoy the beauty of Skaneateles Lake
or dine in their restaurants
they have races. This year I competed for the fifth time in the Skinnyman Triathlon and for the first time in the Race from the Judge, which is a mile-long swim from the dinner cruise boat Judge Ben Wills.
There is also a bike time trial (all uphill) which I judiciously avoided. Maybe next year.
