What I have learned (and am still learning) in my continuing quest after completing my 100th triathlon in 2010.
100 Triathlons...my next will be # 145. Go to the early blogs to read how I got into triathlons. Click on any picture to enlarge it. I'm now in USA Triathlon's Century Club; go to https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Triathlon/Membership-Services/Member-Recognition/Deca-and-Century-Club/Century-Club "It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood...who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly." Theodore Roosevelt 1910

Lucky's Lake Swim
I finally got out to the Lucky's Lake Swim on Lake Cane by Universal Studios. I heard about this last year but never got a chance to go. Dr. Lucky Meisenheimer generously opens his home and lake up to anyone who want to swim. The lake is one kilometer across and back and the swim starts at 7:45 on Saturday morning. You can use the bathrooms and showers by the pool too. There were about 85 people there this morning, all having a great time. I swam 1 lap at 24:12 and then another at 26:00 after a 5 minute rest. So 2 kilometers (equals 1.32 miles) in 50:12; not bad. Had a great time; I'll be back soon.
I live in Orlando, Florida, having moved here from Chicago in January, 1994. I've been married for more than 35 years to Sandy, who is a wonderful wife, chef, and singer. We had 2 rabbits, Fawn and Sarah, who roamed around the house for over 12 and brought us great joy. I raced cars in the 1970s, we toured on motorcycles in the 1980s, and sailed boats in the 1990s. I was a professional photographer for 25 years in the corporate world in Chicago. I now work at Ernst & Young as the office "jack-of-all-trades" in downtown Orlando. We have a great home close to Wekiwa Springs State Park, which is an exceptional training ground.
