Member Don Kiely took part in the 2015 National Senior Games held this month. Athletes competing in the National Senior Games must first qualify at a state level and Don was one of several Fairbanks runners selected to take part. Don, whose running resume includes age division honors in numerous local races, found the National Senior Games experience "really interesting, amazing to have 10,000 athletes come and compete at some surprisingly high levels." In addition to his own running in the road races, Don got to cheer on triathletes and saw the archery competition, finding it really impressive that competitors could consistently hit the center from 80 yards out. "People were so nice" said Kiely "competitive but fun. The key thing was everyone was so supportive and just there to have a good time."
