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 4 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)

Thanks for the Goodie. I’m just catching up after a crazy 2 weeks. One of the recent developments in our obesity epidemic is the backlash where those at a healthy weight are called skinny or anorexic. The examples of the truly anorexic models are no more the norm than the guy in “My 600 pound life” is the norm for those overweight. Our perceptions of “fat” have changed. On our Retro TV channel I was watching “Jake and the Fat Man.” The “fat man” wouldn’t even get a second glance today. Also I read an analysis of fashion models over the years. Most models have the same measurements as decades ago. It’s society that’s changed so they look skinnier to us. I’ve got to find that link, although I doubt the “skinny bashers” want to see it.

Thanks for the comment on my blog post. I am planning a 10 miler on the 4th July weekend and then I am doing a half marathon in August in Michigan (www.northcountryrun.com). I am actually taking a liking to trail running.

Playing sparkCatchup! Thanks for recognizing two of my pictures!

I do like motivational clips! I use them often, and now I share them with those I know could use them.

Would you mind if I copied the content of your blog to post for my women's triathlete group on facebook? I would not link to your page or identify you. I just think the words carry so much meaning for many of the ladies in the group as they constantly question their athlete status and don't give themselves credit because they are struggling at the BOP.
