Houston surgeon trains for his 18th Ironman at age 79

Don't ask him to act his age. Dr. Abdel Fustok is training for his 18th Ironman at age 79

HOUSTON — It was a routine checkup for a life insurance policy that changed Dr. Abdel Fustok's life. A high blood pressure reading motivated him to change his life one step at a time.  

A run in the park led to a marathon, then an ultra marathon, and in 2004, Dr. Abdel Fustok became Ironman.  Well, not the superhero, but it's hard to argue he doesn't have superpowers at age 79.  Click on the video above to find out how he did it and how you can too.
