2016 Florida Senior Games

2016 Florida Senior Games Track & Field schedule
Today’s schedule of events.


The 2016 Florida Senior Games at Lake Minneola High School begin in two hours.

Need to leave home in an hour to get there 30-minutes before the Shot Put.

No need to warm up.

Haven’t thrown since that one time a few months ago, when i just wanted to establish whether or not i could throw in the 30-foot range.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Lane 8 Makes You Want To

Sundays in August. You Tube videos. Perfect timing for a look back one year ago.

Lane 8 makes you want to do something when you consider this man was 100 years old and still competing in sports – the Shot Put no less.

Masters Track?

Yes, Masters Track.

What do you do to stay motivated to reach and maintain your health goals?

Master’s athletes are defined as people over 30 years old.

There are other sports that have Masters competitions too.  The thought of trying something completely out of my comfort zone actually seems possible – at a future time, of course.


Because the whole point of the competition, to me, is simply to find ways to stay motivated.  When things get boring, I get less motivated.

This is a deadly place to be, literally.

Someday. maybe swimming.  Or perhaps I’ll try Filed events, like the Discus, Shot Put, or, heaven forbid, the Pole Vault.

Whatever it takes.  That’s one of the secrets to staying healthier.  I figure everybody knows this, but it never hurts to say important things over and over.

Does it?

Alfred Prokschin is 100 years old.  Does his age stop him?  Does he make excuses?

If not today, when? If not you, who?

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
