Hi all. Found the forum over the weekend and I look forward to spending some time with a cup of coffee looking it over. I am 45 and have participated in triathlons since 1989. I generally donâ€™t do sprints but there was time I did the Hooters Man Tri just for the t-shirt. I enjoy Olympic distance races the most but truly like Half Irons as well. I have also dabbled in a couple of off road triâ€™s and adventure races.
Performance wise, I have come semi-close to placing in my age group but that was a race in Columbia SC where they were giving awards 5 deep and I almost got close enough to trip a guy in front of me. One day, (probably when I am the only one in my age group) I hope to place and bring home the hardware but before that I want to complete an IronMan.
To those just starting I say hang in there and donâ€™t forget to enjoy yourself. To those finishing ahead of me keep the hammer down because I like a good chase.
Peace, cheers and be safe out there.
