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.

Vic, good luck on your upcoming Tallahassee Marathon. I know you'll do us geezers proud!!

I certainly envy you living in Florida at the moment. I'm looking out at 8 inches of snow right now and it's still coming down. No question what I'll be doing for my cardio workout today.

Take care
