They had not met each other before that Saturday morning in September, 2004. They were acquainted only by reputation.

Ms. Stoll, then 63, was the fastest senior runner in Tennessee, dominant at all distances from one mile to the half-marathon, having recently run a 5K in 21:54. She sets an age-group state record every time she runs.

It’s not that you’re really getting slower, it’s just that you don’t seem to be getting any faster.
