I started running at age 64, now 3 years later I've logged a few miles, including 5 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 comfortable with the swim portion. (edit: got the swim, need bike endurance)

I know all the southerners would have emoticon emoticon wildly for the Chicago weather. It was hot, but not humid, and the pavement was brutal with no shade. They had two water spouts going in the last few miles, which was a relief.

emoticon for visiting my blog!

I just looked up and saw a video of what your grandson is training to do. Amazing!! How exciting for him and scary for all of your family! He's going to be up there with the Navy Seals!!

That's exciting! My hubby is a Navy guy - he loved it (worked on jets on carriers). My son is going in the Army National Guard. He will be back in April after training in Georgia. He is going to boot camp in Missouri.

Quite a professionally done video. Such a nice memento. Who created it?
