Boomers ♥ Bloomsday

Bloomsday would seem to be the perfect fit for the baby boom generation that prides itself on staying fit, playing outdoors and socializing with friends. Age isn’t slowing these “senior” walkers and runners down, with nearly 11 percent – or 4,367 – of the 46,915 finishers last year born between 1946 and 1964. In fact, the top 25 finishers in the men’s divisions ran Bloomsday 2013 in less than an hour until the 65-69 age bracket, when only the top four finishers ran it in under an hour. For the women’s divisions, the top 17 finishers in the 50-54 age bracket ran it in less than an hour and the top four in the 55-59 bracket. For the 60-64 age division, only the top finisher finished in under an hour/Erica Curless, SR's Boomer U. More here.

Question: When did you last participate in Bloomsday?
