I am about to head out of here - to drive 35 miles to my daughter's house, pick her up, drive to the reservoir, take a swim, take a bike ride, drive my daughter back home, and then drive home myself (35 more miles). I think I will take pictures and post them here, OK? We have only 2 weeks until the triathlon! Oh My Goodness! I am so excited!

p.s. My daughter did not make it... seems she was up all night with her 13 year old step-daughter... (can you say karma???). Anyway. I was so disappointed to be going alone, I cried for several miles on I-70. Pitiful. But I got to the park by 7:00 a.m., and swam with some other ladies training for the tri - then rode my bike - then ran 2 miles. I am pooped. And it is a good thing. I think if I had energy today, I might use it to have an emotional "bender" as Bill W. would have called it.
