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, (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.

Thanks! I hope to continue to be active for many years to come, if I can stay fit and healthy. I enjoy reading up on your exploits too.

Fortunately our current visitors are a little less stressful than our last set of visitors! Today they went to the west point museum, we are hoping to take them out on the boat tomorrow if the weather cooperates. Hope you have a good experience with your guests too.
