As I was finishing PT today the Therapist made a point of showing me a picture of a man some several years older than me completing a triathlon. It was The Triathlon, The Iron Man. She was the latest in a string of people suggesting I train for and compete in a full triathlon. That leads me to some reality checking.
How many of you in the 70+ bracket do triathlons? How many do you know who are elders and do triathlons?
Obstacles? Lessons Learned?
At first glance it seems silly for me to even consider such a thing. But, at the same time the prospect is tantalizing.
