Old Dog - Still Learning New Tricks

Long time fitness buff. While never being truly overweight, I have a hard time keeping my body fat percentage under control. I continue to strength train a few times a week. I've added swimming and bike riding into my fitness plan recently. Trying to do twice a week on each.

I started running at age 64, now 3 years later I've logged a few miles, including 6 marathons.

I completed my first Sprint Triathlon at age 66. My goal now is to complete an Olympic Triathlon, (done: 8/17/14) then a 70.3 if I can get my bike speed/endurance up. (edit: done, 4/12/2015)

Now that I’ve faced my fear and uncertainty on 2 separate issues, I thought I’d thank you again for the inspiration I got from your Ironman blog a few weeks ago. My blog about the HM in Europe explains one issue, but before I even left, I conquered my fear of solo singing and was the cantor at church. I sing in many choral groups, but facing a microphone alone required a booster shot of courage. Everything turned out well and I’m looking forward to repeating the experiences.

Thanks for the congrats on my latest effort. The day was miserable, 44F and raining, with steady winds at 10 to 15mph and the course was the hilliest I've ever been on. I felt like I was running pretty well the entire time, but when it was over, I just wanted to get home and take a long hot shower. My next half is at the end of May. I'm still trying to beat your time!!!

Great job on your tri's. You really ARE pretty darn awesome, especially for an old fart.
