Last year while at Lake Placid I was an aid station worker. What a blast!! While in the campground I was in I met a 73 year old man who had finished the Tri. Now this Ironman is in the mountains of the Adirondacks and very hilly. I figure if he can do it so can I. I am only 67. I have been in training ever since. I will do the one here in Arizona, God willing and the creek don't rise, next year. My big problem is swimming, running and biking, and in that order, and of course staying healthy. I am in a 3 month lay off from surgery and about to scream from boredom. I have done lots of century rides, so I am not to worried about the biking.
