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.

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.

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

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.
