Age is just a number i am 54 whacked out some half mara PBs 2 years ago that i voulfnt get anywhere near in my 30/40s its all about quality of training and consistency get a good training plan stick to it no excuses and make every session count ( that dosent mean mullering yourself every session neither) follow the plan

Dave just about nails it there its not about gear but commitment, well done on your acheivements so far TNLN if you are really serious about a HIM then there is really nothing to hold you back but yourself commit go for it you would be amazed what you can acheive with effort a full Ironman is not out of reach of anyone with the right approach people with serious disabilities/terminal illnesses have cracked them, i wish you well in your efforts

whats next

My advice stick to the sprints whilst you build up your fitness and endurace you can use your mountain bike for this when you can comfortably swim for 40 minutes, run for an hour and bike for 90 mins (seperately) get a road bike then identify what HIM you want to do get a beginners HIM training program google it there are loads or try this onehttp://www.beginnertriathlete.com/cms/article-detail.asp?articleid=52

Do the training no slacking or excuses and you should be good to go i realy is that simple commit, train hard, race simples

Its not about exclusivity you can pick up cheap second hand road bikes and no one would comment on you using it, any road bike is going to much faster than a mtb and your limited cash budget would have been better spent in that direction if you are serious about this, frankly from your starting point if you are going to try to do a half IM on an MTB you are delusional still as with Dave i wish you well and i am out
