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 5 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 comfortable with the swim portion. (edit: got the swim, need bike endurance)

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

Thanks for visiting my blog, especially in my absence this summer. The mountains are definitely different than rolling hills. In the Midwest, we do not even get rolling hills. So I will take what I get!
