Empire State Senior Games – Track and Field

The weather conditions weren’t ideal – misty rain , cool temps and strong gusts of wind when the forecast merely called for cool temperatures. Kathryn came home from the – Empire State Senior Games track meet with 3 golds and 2 silvers. She successfully executed two strategic maneuvers:

1) in the 800 meter she locked onto her primary competitor until the final turn and then picked up her pace to finish 10-15 yards ahead

2) in the subsequent 1500m her competitor tried the same strategy on her, trailing until the final turn and catching Kathryn who then unleashed an awesome kick resulting in applause from the spectators and a decisive win.
