Prior to the 80s, few kids had the kind of electronic "baby-sitters" that are prevalent, today. As I was growing up, television was very limited in our household. Every time a group of kids managed to watch more than a few shows, a parent was there to send them out the door. Regardless of where we went, we were encouraged (pronounced "forced") to get outside and do something. Bike rides, golfing, running around the park, chasing through the woods, and launching then chasing model rockets are just a few of the activities we did to burn calories.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
