    I was born in 1949. I am looking forward to 2050.

    The first Boston Marathon measured 24.5 miles. “On April 19, 1897, John J. McDermott of New York, emerged from a 15-member starting field and captured the first B.A.A. Marathon in 2:55:10.” In 2006, that mark would place him 5th among the women age 40-49 (Gina M. McGee, 2:55:03). However, the modern race is longer. Therefore, today, McDermott would beat all of the women 50-59, but none of the women 40-49. His time calculated for the longer course would be the same as John Smallwood, in the Men’s Age 60-69 who clocked 3:10:44.

    “I start my day
    The vitamin way.
    I shovel in those grams.
    So I don’t age
    and I don’t stress
    and I don’t give a damn.”
