ALBANY, Ore. - When Bill and Cathi Alden got a chance to be on the Amazing Race, they couldn't pass it up.
"Many of our friends said, 'oh we could never do that, we would kill one another.'" says Cathi.
Not only did the Albany couple make it on the show, they were the oldest team to compete so far.
"We were up against many athletic teams," Bill says,"Most of them were half our age."
However, they didn't let it stop them and they went on to finish in the top five -- proving that age doesn't have to play a factor.
Cathi tells KVAL, "Although we didn't win we couldn't have been happier with the circumstance of getting to go and getting to experience what we did."
Experiences like Bill's adventure behind the wheel of a Ford Mustang. It's something he says he will never forget and can now be checked off his bucket list.
"We definitely won in all aspects," says Bill.
