Beautiful triathletes; another chilly day on the island ….

triathlete #5Hi, friends and readers:

I know the photo to the left is larger than most I put up on this site, but I found it so beautiful that I didn’t want to shrink it any more than I had to. I find everything about the photo amazing: the athlete’s stringy muscles, his sweaty skin and hair, and even the numbers inked onto his arm and leg. I hope you like the photo as much as I do.

I really admire triathletes. The competition involves a half-mile swim, a 5K run, and a 20K bike ride. You have to be in superb shape in order to finish a triathlon, and training for one can take months of dedication. One of my goals, now that my knee replacements surgery is done, is to compete in a triathlon within a year from now. We’ll see ….

triathlete #3I got up around eight this morning, hoping I could take a three-mile walk on the beach, but alas, it’s cold outside and a 15 MPH wind is steadily blowing form the northeast, making most any outdoor activity miserable. I skipped the walk and instead got busy on my novel-in-progress, which is now at 58,000 words. The first draft is quickly drawing to a close, although I’m not exactly sure how it will end. I know that sounds strange, but that’s the way I write: freestyle.

My boyfriend has the day off today so he can drive me to a clinic where I’ll have a minor medical procedure performed that is linked to my knee replacement surgery back in May of last year. It’s a simple process, and then we’ll spend our evening together. We visited our timeshare down the street last night, to soak in the hot tub, and maybe tonight, after dinner, we’ll ave a blaze in our patio fire pit. Hey, it’s winter in Florida, so we do these kinds of things.

Have a great Wednesday, everyone.
