I was a heptathlete in college, which is the multi event. The men do the decathlon, the women do the heptathlon. I loved the sport. Ten years later. I was a photojournalist, living in New York City, doing an assignment for the New York Times and I met a doctor who competed in this sport. I was just really curious about it. I borrowed my friend's Hasselblad, borrowed someone's car, and I went to Kentucky to check it out. I really wanted to see something different about aging. I really didn't know what I was going to find, and I was really surprised by it. It was really authentic, the people were really athletes. They were very competitive, very focused, and it was a kind of shocking contrast to see that.
