Emilio DeSoto: How does he do it?
Quote | Reply
At Alcatraz I was going out on the run, trying to beat the band to catch my wife who had about a minute on me by then. I am about a 1/2 mile away from the transition area and here comes this buff looking dude. He is prety much flying. Bare in mind, this guy is a 1/2 mile from the finish line and I am a 1/2 mile into the run. So basically he has a 7 mile lead on me. The dude is the same age as me.

It was Emilio DeSoto of DeSoto Sports. He is wearing one of those gawd-awful, dorky "DeSoto" trucker caps. Those must be cool in California. Anyway.

So, this guy owns a company that kicks butt, is super fast, has that vaguely latin thing going on so chicks are always hanging around him.

I, on the other hand, was in the process of getting my (now) fat ass handed to me by my wife, felt like shit, had my photo taken by a guy and posted on this forum with a major spare tire around my waist and the race darn near killed me.

So, how does he do it?

And had I been lucky enough to win a lottery entry that would have been me!

(1) Past life as a pro - good life-long base.

(2) He lives in Cali where the weather is nice year round so you have to keep in shape when you exposing skin Jan - Dec!!! No chance to fatten up for the winter.

(3) Fast = attracting more women.

Sounds that way, although I still want the opportunity to swim the bay and run (walk) the sand steps even if Mr & Mrs D won't be there. Good Luck in the new store, I look forward to visiting and buying some of those special spacers etc.

This is what you get for marrying one of those young, athletic swimsuit model types, Tom.

Still seems like a pretty good trade. Next time you race with her you better get into shape or people are going to start to think she married for money ;-)

How is your arm swing when you run? That photo looks like they go from side to side. Could just be the shot though.

At least you have that elbows-out Peter Reid running style. You got that going for you!

Good news:Your spare tire is not as bad as my spare tire. I'm dreading trying to get into my wetsuit this Sunday for my first race.

Bad news: It is DANG HARD to lose the spare tire once we hit that late 40's/early 50's thing.

The more I swim the more my legs like it, and the heavier I get.

The less I run the more my legs like it, and the heavier I stay.

The spare is not that bad Tom, and you have some guns also.... I would be more worried about the girl who looks like she is FLYING by you. :)

For starters, he swam in a Desoto wetsuit, so that give him a huge advantage in the swim.

WRT the chicks hanging around him, I can only suspect that his reputation for excellent service goes beyond wetsuits and shorts...

I did recently see someone filling up his gas tank at a local station, and knew he was a porn star when, just as he was about to complete the filling of his tank he pulled the nozzle out and sprayed his entire car down with gas....

Well, he also has been seen with crazy Portuguese, so a few points off there. ;-)

i assume emilio is enjoying this thread immensely. i'd add one other factor to the above, and that is his very close family. he struck it rich when he was born into that group.
