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 5 marathons.

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.

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.

Blue crabs are the best. We don't have a lot this year - not enough females. I usually crab. I am rockfishing this year (striped bass)

I love traveling with Roxy. Bostons are perfect to travel with. They never make a peep.

Thanks for the support! Stay cool and hydrated as you head into tapering - every run just feels hotter lately, and I've been getting up earlier and earlier on long run days to try to avoid it. Can't wait for Fall.

Good luck on your Tri!

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!"
