Elie Hirschfeld’s Marathon Ways
is nothing like his late dad Abe Hirschfeld, the publicity-loving real-estate man who once long ago controlled this newspaper for a few days between his hapless campaigns for public office. Elie, 60, started jogging 27 years ago. He completed 10 marathons and 75 triathlons. Last February, he was the oldest competitor in Israel’s Israman Ironman Distance Triathlon. And this weekend, he’ll run, bike and swim in the Eiffel Tower Triathlon in Paris. We’re exhausted just thinking about it.
