Many years ago when he was a child I told my eldest son that if the day came that he could beat me in a 100 meters race, I would concede that I am old. We talked together today about the comment as we kicked a rugby ball together on Cilfynydd RFC's pitch.
The years have put on too much weight on me and I now have a slightly doggy hip after bouncing badly on a child's trampoline a couple of years ago. That will teach me.
I live in the hope however that if I could lose a couple of stone and run some more I could at least take him on.
I'm just looking forward to yet another year and hope that 2008 will be a happy year. Happy new year everyone!
