Never Too Old To Train, So Keep Moving!

I’m 79 years old today (forgetting gestation time), and signed up for Arizona Ironman, that I intend to finish if I possibly can. For Frits, who will come along (some of his ashes, anyway) in a little plastic bag in my back pocket, as he does for all my races. He always wanted to qualify for Kona, but never quite made it.


When I make the mistake of thinking I’m old, I remember this guy, and I just keep on trucking.

I’ll get us there if I can, Frits (with an ‘s’).
