Just wanted to say thanks to Sam - who couldn't resist breaking out a little Harry during the pre-race dinner - for letting the momster tag along for the Buck Creek International Triathlon last weekend. It helped me to see how the race actually worked - getting ones gear set up in the transitions, etc.
But I also appreciated men and women who were obviously - obviously - older and heavier than moi chugging past me - in swimsuits! - on that steep uphill out of the swim and steadily working to propel their bike down the road. KUDOS to all those people who were able to set aside all thoughts of "I'm not young, slim, fast, buff enough.." and just got out there and DID IT. Thank you, thank you. You spur me on.
