I thought that this was a young man's event, something to look back on wistfully with the passage of years. I was very wrong! I completed my first dec since 1984 at the World Masters Athletics championships in Perth this past August. Hundreds of men competing in their age categories (28 in mine alone!). No, performances nowhere near those of bygone years (certainly for me). But the dedication, desire and drive are undiminished in all, despite the passing of years...and just plain fun! Nope, not the decathlete I was...but a decathlete I can still be! No to figure out how to lose either 25 pounds...or 25 years!
