Tomorrow morning I'll run three miles along Mission Bay in San Diego, and try to stay under 24 minutes.
This is 25 years after I graduated from Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training a few miles away in Coronado. I guess I'm just glad I'm still able to run at 47; many of my compadres cannot any more.
But seriously, I want to salute your qualification for and participation in the Hawaiian Ironman! Not many folks can even imagine the dedication and sacrifice that feat entails.
I'm 50 and can't even spell ruuun rnnu roon ruinn.....
Our day was a six mile jog in 40 minutes so yer on par . A half hour swim, a few hours of free weights and nautilis torture followed by anything our NCOIC could conjur up.
My life of low mileage and sudden stops has taken their toll. I'll swim for hours now but rnnu rnu urn roon er whatever ain't in my vocabulary anymore in present condition. Good on ya for staying healthy ! How many years were ya active ??
