NORMAN SENIORS TO COMPETE IN OKLAHOMA CITY MEMORIAL SENIOR MARATHON
Four seniors from Sooner Station are setting out to complete the Oklahoma City Memorial Senior Marathon.
80-year-old Barbara Porter, 82-year-old John Schwarts, 72-year-old David Coffman and 81-year-old Judy Black from Sooner Station Senior Living in Norman have been training hard to reach their goals.
According to Sooner Station, the seniors’ goal began when a representative from the OKC Memorial Marathon visited the seniors to promote the Senior Marathon. Although the 26.2 miles seemed daunting, the seniors complete the majority of their race over the course of four months and the final 1.2 miles are finished on race day.
