I am unashamedly number 5. They even got my "Don't call me sprightly" nearly right.

"The Faithful Geezer is usually male and is a minimum of sixty-five years old but is usually pushing eighty. The Faithful Geezer usually has a haggard appearance and looks like he would be unable to run 1.6km. He will then run 42km and manage to pass you during the run. In the gym, the Geezer is the first one there and the last to leave. His personal motto is "Slow and steady wins the race." He laughs at the young, reckless runners who don't pass themselves. He runs slightly hunched over and likes to yell out encouraging comments to the youngsters running near him. These can only occasionally be made out because of his raspy voice. Although he is advanced in years, this runner is young in spirit and what he lacks in quickness he makes up with steadfastness.

"Trademark items: Lucky running charm, denture, water belt, knee and elbow padding, spectacles.

"Tagline description: Never Say Old.

"Killer feature: Bionic X-ray Vision – This comes through his bifocals and allows him to spot the next rest station at least 1km away."
