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.

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

i have fun memories of sundsvall too - i was only there once, for a conference, the year of the volcano in iceland - we made it to the conference, but our luggage did not; there was snow, and we had the sweaters we were wearing on the plane - and that was it. power shopping, courtesy of air france, which eventually sent us our luggage two weeks after we returned home!
