This post should go up at exactly 7 a.m., which is when the Escape From Fort Desoto Triathlon is scheduled to begin. If you’re reading this between 7 a.m. and 7:40, I’m probably flailing around in the Gulf of Mexico in a one-piece bathing suit and swim cap. Also: if you’re up at 7 a.m., go back to bed. You’re up too early. If you’re reading this between 7:45 and 8:00, I’m probably approaching mile 5 on my Bianchi. If it’s 9 a.m., I’m on foot, tackling the thing I feared most — running.
If you’re my husband Joe, you’re blowing the minds of every person who knows you by being awake and out of the house at 5:30 a.m. on a Saturday. I love you, my pep squad of one.
Oh, and happy birthday to me!
