Fifty is Nifty
Well actually, at times, minutes at a time, it can be very hot. I have often said race directors should add a new category of racers called " Women with hot flashes". I'm telling you, it is a new experience; while racing suddenly you become hotter than a stove top coil on high. You know... your blood begins to "boil", your tolerance level for your teammates goes way down and all you want to do is lay down naked in the nearest body of water whether it be in a deep ditch or a muddy puddle.
It is hard to explain to others who do not experience this. I myself used to make fun of women who, for no apparent reason, ripped off their outer wear, stretched their arms away from their body, grabbed a piece of newspaper, a book , or any other available "fan" and began using it, wildly. And then with less apparent provocation than before; put everything back on.
Sara just laughs at me when I say I should get special compensation for my age.
She'll find out.
