New Italian guy living in Krakow (Poland)

Good morning to all the forum members. My name is Marco, I am new to the forum turning 47 in few months and I have a dream, finishing 5 Ironman in 5 continents by the age of 50. I do consider myself as an average normal guy but with a huge passion for triathlon and biking is the discipline I love the most!! reason of this thread is to connect with people that share the same passion and maybe have the chance to train with some of them. I am living in Krakow (Poland), so if you are in the area please drop a line and meet for some good training .

if you really want something, you can do it It's a lot of training but still manageable. For me the training is still something that I do enjoy and keep me fit and healthy: if you feel that you have to do it then it's getting harder
