... to schedule my first Olympic-distance triathlon 6 days after getting back from vacation? A vacation that involved little exercise and (of course) gaining a few pounds?
Pam's race report and the accompanying photos were a nice reminder to me about why I do triathlons. It's not every day that one gets to experience such exhilaration!
Maybe I'll just think of it as an enforced taper, like Wil's illness before her marathon.
Not to mention that I also received a Sign From God today: I laid my hands on Buttercup's front wheel sensor and lo, her bike computer was healed. Thus it shall be.
