What I have learned (and am still learning) in my continuing quest after completing my 100th triathlon in 2010.

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."

SCT Lake Monroe Bike & Run
Saturday started with a 10 person Seminole County Triathletes Meetup at D2 Cycling in Sanford at 7:00 AM. We took off for a 33 mile bike around Lake Monroe. A little extension of the course took us down some empty country roads.
Everyone laughed when we passed a "Lost Pig" sign by a mailbox. Upon our return, 6 of us ran the D2 2.7 mile loops, some twice, some 3 times; Deanna and I did 7.25 miles. It got quite hot near the end in the bright sunshine. Good workout: it's nice to have D2 as a place to meet.
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.
