Athlete Spotlight – Howard Goodman – 70-74

Howard Goodman at Senior Games

This week our athlete spotlight shines on Howard Goodman of Berkeley, CA. Howard isn’t afraid to take on new challenges and at age 72, Howard continues to tackle cycling and multisport adventures.

On February 12th, Howard conquered the Du the Bears Duathlon in Orinda, CA winning the Golden Masters category, covering the 2-19-2 run/bike/run course in 2:25:27.

On Saturday April 2, Howard competed at the Bay Area Senior Games in Palo Alto, CA. Howard raced in the 5k and 10k cycling time trials, finishing 5th and 6th in the 70-74 age group. The following day, Howard lined up with some seriously fit dudes in the 30k road race.

He crossed the line in 6th place to the cheers of friends and Hypercat supporters! Coach Phil Casanta was pleased with Howard’s racing and how well he recovered to race back to back days.

Watch out – next up for Howard? The USA Triathlon Duathlon National Championship in Tuscon, AZ on April 30, 2011.
