Dose of inspiration

November 26, 2014
Editorial , Lake Placid News

As people indulge in the holidays, and their waistlines grow, many are making plans to improve their health in 2015. Others simply want to make a difference in their community. Some people do both at the same time.

For those making healthy resolutions for the new year, here is a dose of inspiration from our friend Mac Rand, of Lake Placid, who completed the Ironman Lake Placid triathlon on Sunday, July 27 and repeated the same mileage the next day, all at the ripe age of 60.

"My proudest moment this year was finishing the Lake Placid Ironman twice in two days and raising almost $32,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society," Rand said. "This picture is after finishing the second day. It was an unbelievable feeling of achievement."
