I'm a 70 year old Realtor and triathlete. This is my 11th season racing. I usually race 5-6 times a year, this year, however, I broke my collarbone in a bike crash 4 weeks before my first full Ironman, so I only have 4 races this year. Two are World Championships ( 70.3 and Oly). I was never an athlete as a child, teen or younger adult. Started just running for exercise when I was in my late 30's. My daughter said to me once, "Let's do an indoor triathlon, Mom!" I hadn't been in a pool in 15 years! I started slow, but am still hereI have 3 kids and 4 grandkids. :)
