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.

My friend with the "marine room" was almost killed twice in Vietnam . First he was wounded badly then the medevac helicopter that picked him up was shot down . When our kids were little we went to the parade that he marched in on Memorial Day. As he marched by his daughter announced in a very LOUD voice, "that's my Dad and he has scrap metal in his head!"
