I completed my first Sprint Triathlon at age 66. My goal now is to complete an Olympic Triathlon, then a 70.3 if I can get comfortable with the swim portion.

I do ST at least 2 times a week. Cycling and swimming more lately, training for triathlons.

Personal Information:
Married to my childhood sweetheart.
Retired, living in Maitland, FL
US Navy Vietnam Era Vet.
Long time fitness buff, about 35 years of continuous ST. I call myself "A short ectomorph" as an excuse for not having gained muscle mass over the years. :) Lousy body building genetics, (native american genes) but fair amount of desire to be the best I can be.

Other Information:
The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses, it is won behind the scenes, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights. - Muhammad Ali

Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best. - Henry Van Dyke

"If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way." - Napoleon Hill

LOL! No, I'm not speaking the week after my Oly tri... I said YES when I was still high from my last Oly tri, in June. BUT, I do have a second Oly tri slated for September 14th... so I have my training to keep me from getting too jittery over the short speech. emoticon
