WARNER ROBINS -- Even on a 100-degree day, with track temperatures rising above that, a couple, both senior citizens, are out training at Houston County High School.

Warner Robins residents Mary Ealer, 69, and George Ealer, 71, will compete in the National Senior Games in Houston, Texas, Thursday through June 30. They join about a half dozen other people from Houston and Peach counties who have qualified for the games.

The husband and wife were chosen to be flag bearers for Georgia in the Parade of Champions.

They qualified for the games during the Georgia Golden Olympics, held in September, by finishing in the top three in their age groups.

“To represent the state of Georgia and the city of Warner Robins means so much,” Mary Ealer said.

Mary Ealer will compete in the triathlon, while George Ealer will race in the 100-meter dash.

Of the two, Mary Ealer is the competitive one.
