www.conniecarey.com“Ahem.  I’m going to do a triathlon.”  “What?”  John was concerned.  “How long do you plan to train?”

“A day,” I replied, trying to sound logical.   “And what’s the course?”

“1750 yard swim, 14 mile bike ride, 3.1 mile run.”  I sat down, feeling suddenly tired as I said that out loud.

“Knock yourself out, Baby.”

Actually, I was afraid I might do just that…..
