I'm not posting this to show off, in fact, many people whose primary sport is triathlon would consider my finish time a total embarrassment -- 6hrs 28min. So what? I enjoy it and I'm getting better at it every year!!! As you know, I am a private person and rarely talk about myself but when it comes to my fitness goals its different. Why? Several reasons. First, because its important for me to show that whether you are a newbie or very advanced in fitness, it important to *always* have fitness goals you are working toward and have a step by step plan to get there. Second, because I want to show that life does exist outside the fluorescent lit gym. A big part of fitness and health is getting outside and *using* those muscles you have worked so hard to build. A lot of people seem to have trouble getting motivated to workout. A big part of their problem in my opinion is because they view bodybuilding as a cosmetic sport, big-ripped-muscles-fast. When they fail at this impossible goal, they quickly lose interest. If you view bodybuilding as an integral part of your life which makes you healthier and lets you have more fun, then the motivation is easy! Regardless of your favorite sport from golf to skydiving, bodybuilding can make your game better and more enjoyable. Another reason I am sharing my races with you is that I feel its important to practice what I preach. In my opinion, nobody should be giving out advice that they can't or won't follow themselves. I tell you the importance of cardio and I DO cardio -- lots of it! I tell you how important it is to do cross training with sports outside bodybuilding and I DO it. Its often said that you need to choose a trainer who has achieved what you want to achieve -- not a perfect method of choosing a trainer but there are far worse ways. Anyway, thats why I feel its important to share when I do my races.

wow I used to watch this guy forever ago when I used to lift. then when I took up marathon running I stopped bc being that big is just so impractical for life. to see Scooby do a half ironman with his age and size is amazing! keep it up!!
