Examples of chronological age in a Sentence

  1. Jeff Weaver:

    Anybody who follows Bernie Sanders for one day and sees his schedule, and how rigorous it is, and how he drives everybody around him, works them into the ground with the amount of work and energy he has, I think they would understand that his chronological age is just not really a measure of his true age, bernie Sanders is an extremely energetic and vigorous person, and has more energy, I would say, than people half his age.

It requires a combination of drive but also stamina and the advantage Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio would have is being approximately 20 years their junior.
