W3R3 and birthday triathlon!

celebrated my 61st birthday with W3R3 (treadmill) followed by 10k (stationary) cycle ride then 1k (pool) swim. My own personal triathlon! Now feel I can eat my slice of birthday cake with a clear conscience (provided I have the breath to blow out the candles!) And as for Laura's healthy banana snack- well I sliced it into ice cream, drizzled it with Bailey's and sprinkled it with chocolate- we seniors know how to party!

lol...Have you set your sites on Hawaii in a couple years?

I'm working in a mountain bike ride on the rest days....and eyeing a membership at a local health club so I can swim....

I figure that at 64 I may have a chance at placing in the over 70 age group...lolololol

wouldn't mind a holiday in Hawaii even if it meant doing ironman (person?). They'd have to extend the competition for me though- it'd take me a few days to complete the course. Thanks, everyone for your good wishes. I had a great day.
