Triathalon? Are you nuts?

I’ve done it. I’m desperate for another idiotic challenge and have joined the Elk Grove Triathlon Club. I even attended a meeting and everything. They served beer. And pizza. Very sneaky of them, luring me in with crack  pizza & beer.  These are smart people.  So the next step would be to actually sign up for a triathlon, you might think.  Which is correct except that I’m trying not to spend too much money and of course the deadline for the current price isn’t until May some time, for the July event.

Hello Mr. Procrastination…

So I guess I’ll actually sign up for one tonight.  Jake said he would do the Fathers Day one with me, a 400 yard swim, 8 mile bike and 2 mile run.  I’d love to take him up on the offer but the little bugger might beat me, which would be humbling and lead me to acknowledge the obvious:  that I’m not 21 and fit anymore.

I also need to check to see what my Fathers Day will be, since I’m not usually in charge of that day.  (ahhh, Mr. Procrastination returns).

Back to signing up… Maybe I’ll do two, the Fathers Day and the July one.  Hmmm.  $140 for both.

Shoot gosh darnit.  What to do?  I’m not a good swimmer but I’ve already been in the pool a few times back in December and I’m sure I can get enough work in to swim .5 mile.  What’s that, 650 yards or so?  I can do that, right?

Let me know if this sounds like you (sorry, a friend of yours).

Ok.  I’m in. Now if I can just figure out what Speedo to wear that will most embarrass my kids….
