Saturday Plans


Last Monday on my way to swim at a local YMCA, I noticed they are hosting an indoor triathlon. Mind boggled by the number of miles hardcore athletes were expected to swim, bike, and run, I went on my merry way.

Then on Thursday a strange idea occurred. Why not enter it myself? After all, it would challenge me not only physically but also socially, mentally. And it’s not like anyone has to accomplish more than about twenty minutes of each activity.

So I paused to read more about the event. It costs $40 (US) to participate. On top of that, it would probably take up a good portion of my morning, or even day, depending upon number of entrants. That’s prime writing time, not to mention the fact that cash could be saved for another ticket to see Palaye Royale once they embark on their headlining tour.

Guess what I decided to do?

  1. I think I would pass on the triathlon, indoor or not!

  2. 10 years ago I might have actually gone for a triathlon but that was before a nearly endless string of chronic pain and associated treatments. Won't lie, I'd do it in a heartbeat if I was able to.

    1. I'm so sorry you suffer chronic pain. :( I cannot imagine that and have to wonder how well I would handle such an affliction.

  3. I am guessing you passed, I know you wouldn't want to miss another chance to see Palaye Royale :)

    1. Yup. ~grin~ And glad I did because when asked by me going to swim the next day their clerk said there were eight groups (!) of contestants which would have meant basically spending the entire day, I imagine. Be well!

  4. Well, I'd skip it, but I guess I'm lazy and also allergic to chlorine so I can't swim in pools.
