After years of neglect, my 55-year-old body is complaining, loudly. Combined with my apparent inability to diet (I end up obsessing about food and usually end up gaining weight), this is creating a problem. Other than a few blips along the way, the last time I was very fit was when I worked at Barnes Hospital and ran each day at lunch — approximately 32 years ago. Hmmm. So, I’ve decided to set a worthy goal: to go from couch potato to completing a mini-triathlon in one year, (or maybe two!) I also decided to use this blog to chronicle the journey. Day one starts tomorrow!
