Joe Morrison, 47, a super-buffed former Marine, in his Versatacs, writes from the San Diego area: "I was a Force Recon/Special Operations Marine for most of my 23 years on active duty. I did win the Physical Fitness Award (Iron Man) at 1st Force Recon in 1997 at age 35. I would guess the average age of a Force Recon Operator was around 26. I have never competed officially. I'm not a genetic freak. I was the guy who showed up early trained harder, longer and more often than the next guy; and more times than not I was in the front of the pack. The Marines have a solid approach to physical fitness." That is most definitely true. For Joe, that means a lot of strength, cardio, and endurance training. He hits the gym five times a week, and bikes, hikes, and runs.
