91 year old Ninole Man oldest to finish Bolder-Boulder 10K

Bolder-Boulder race start

91 year old Ninole man oldest to complete Bolder Boulder 10k race

Yoshio Takemoto of Ninole, Hawaii was once again in Boulder, Colorado for the annual Memorial Day Bolder Boulder 10k race.
Perfect weather, cool with slight breeze and a few sprinkles allowed Yoshio to complete the 6.2 miles in less than 2 hours with his daughter Susan Takemoto and son-in-law John Bishop, both of Boulder, Colorado.
This year, more than 56,000 runners and walkers participated on a course filled with high fives, belly dancers, slip and slides, more than 24 rock bands, a pretty good Elvis impersonator, and many more people encouraging the participants from the sidelines.

Takemoto did his first 10k here while visiting in Boulder when he was 70 years old. In the last 4 years, he has come to Boulder for the Bolder Boulder 3 times. 

According to his daughter Takemoto is not a runner but walks about 4 miles a day weather permitting and gets on his treadmill when it’s too rainy.  He started walking to keep his body moving and keeps telling us (his kids) that it’s important to keep our bodies moving and our minds active.  He is still the treasurer for his small local Buddhist temple.

“He eats very well, lots of vegetables and in small portions,” his daughter said.  “He was given a yellow jersey last year to wear in this years 10k because he was first in his age group but he did not want to stand out in the crowd and wore the race t shirt that everyone had.  I thought of making a special t shirt to let everyone know how old he was but he definitely was not for that,” she said
