Today is a great big tip of the sombrero to Jose Badillo.  70-74 age group phenom.

Last weekend Jose competed in the Kansas Senior Olympics.

Friday was the first event, the Road 5K,  he took the Gold Medal with a speedy 23:15.

Saturday was the 10K and Jose earned another Gold Medal winning in 49:31.

Sunday was the 1500 and incredibly Jose pulled off the hat trick winning again in 6:18.

What an amazing triple.  Jose qualified for the 2013 USA Senior Olympics in all 3 events.

We’re proud to call Jose a Good Mate!  Jose is shifting focus back to the longer stuff now as he begins his training cycle for the Virgin London Marathon next spring.  Giddyup, Andale, y Vamanos amigo!
