Name: Darol Fishman
Home: Le Grand, CA...Central Valley of CA
What Am I: Total Newbie at age 52!! I watched my son do an Oly and thought I could do this...plus I needed to lose about 35 lbs.
So Far: I've lost the 35 lbs. and have done 2 sprint tri's...the Angels Camp and TBF Tri for Fun #1. Competitive? Far from it except for the feeling of finishing. Plan on doing 2-3 more this season finishing off with the Gateway Oly in Merced.
My favorite quote: “Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well-preserved body, but rather to slide in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, screaming "Holy S%$#...what a ride!!'”
I also ride off-road motorcycles and race flat track...the training has helped in those venues so much!
