It's never too late to be what you might have been. --George Eliot

Athena is the Goddess of wisdom and war. In 2005, I declared war on my own bad tendencies: sloth, being fat, compacency, and being too old for adventure. This is the story of how I went from being someone who never stood when she could sit, to being an ultrarunner, marathoner, and triathlete. Along the way I've cried, laughed, fallen, gotten up, lost, won, hallucinated, been dehydrated, DNF'ed, and been DFL.
I also swear. Alot.
"You're never too old to be what you might have been" --George Eliot

Inspiration Monday

Meet Philipa Raschker. Age 67.





  1. I don't think she looks that good personally...

  2. It's not so much hiw she looks. It's what she is. She's a sixty-seven-year-old woman who hasn't showed down, hasn't stopped trying to win.

  3. Woman after my own heart then...but really, wear a pony tail or get a haircut. I guess it was for the photo op! ha!
