Racing at 40's

I came accross this interview to Greg Bennet and how he intends to make the USA triathlon team for the next olympics, when he'll be 40 years old.

I thought it is amazing and inspiring in equal terms. And a show of how much your determination counts to be successful. Independently of the level you race at, it is always important to know what challenges lay ahead.
This guys is going to be training for a race that will happen in 3 years time; will undergo a lot of physicall pain and probably some setbacks, but he's ready for it. I admire that. And I draw from it for a race that will happen in little over 15 weeks in Hungary.
That was the triathlon highlight of the day for me. The rest was work work work, and some training. Another day off tomorrow so I'm ready for a rest.
