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 3 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.

I do agree that the parents have to model healthy behaviors. I am grateful that my son learned. Trying still with my DD (she's 19) Hopefully she'll come 'round.

I've heard the IM FL 70.3 is a great race. I'm doing IM Chattanooga 70.3 in May after a sprint in Apr and an oly early May. Then it's two more oly before another full in Sept. And that's it for this year! Well, until winter half marathon season starts, LOL.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I like classic rock too. I just don't have the memories to associate with certain songs!

Your comment gave me a good laugh. Now I know who the warning sign was aimed at when we toured Serbia in 2013. There weren’t many signs in English but check this one out.

My last race was our town’s annual Christmas Classic where I chased the “energizer bunny” (from a nearby city) up the last hill. I finished 25 seconds behind her – the best I’ve ever done. She was 2nd in the 65-69 AG and I was 3rd. First place was one of those youngsters just turned 65.
I’ve got a 4 miler coming up Mar 1, a HM on the 22nd and another HM in mid April (in EUROPE!) I’ve never done 2 HMs in the same year let alone 4 weeks apart. I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity. I’ll be there anyway (Czech Republic) since DH is presenting at a conference in the same city that week.
