Someone told me (@kav0267) the only way to do hurdles at my age is to be fearless. "If you try it and you are afraid, forget the idea,” he said. Third day at it, first time actually over a hurdle, and I focused on being fearless. Working at it. #fearlessover50 #thinkingpentathlon #newevent #hurdler @usatfmasterstrack
