This is me, smiling




Why am I smiling, you ask. Isn't it obvious? I have spotted my loving wife, my sherpa for life, as I cross the finish line on a hot, sunny, late July morning. A few minutes earlier, as I crested a hill under the blaring sun, I was not smiling. What can turn my mood? Jane can. She takes such good care of me, is patient beyond belief with me, and just amazes me with her love.

I'm being encouraged...

... to write here more. So, here I am. If people I care about and who care about me want me to write, I'll write.

Finished my 2nd race of the season, the Philadelphia Insurance Triathlon - Olympic distance. I did pretty well considering I did not train specifically for the race and I had been struggling with some congestion. I am in the midst of a 20 week HIM plan and have two Olympic distance races during that time (Philly and NJ State). I am really looking forward to NJ because this will be the first time I've repeated a race. It will be a good gauge of my progress.

here are some pics from Philly......
