Um, another one for my dance card, if your calendar goes that far ahead, Ilene... thanks....
who says life doesn't have a soundtrack?
Participants are asked to dress like zombies. Noah wants to be a zombie carrot. He wants me to be zombie broccoli. We're doomed.

Dear ilene - .
My name is tetsujin and I am a wimp.
.Don’t tell any of my fellow fitness runners who, as I have ever since I started running in 1977, if not the day I was born, always seek out the longest and hardest, if not weirdest, event possible for as much exercise as possible but my elation upon learning from Mariposai’s DH that there was going to be a replacement triathlon after all for the cancelled sprint triathlon (0.5/13/3.1) I did in mid-September last year (after being out-of-town for the super-sprint favorite (0.25/12/3.1) I’d been doing every August for the last 15 years) turned to abject fear when I realized it was scheduled for September 30, just when the water temps have dropped to the low sixties and fall storms could make conditions even worse than the choppy surfaces and rain in last year’s one-half mile swim. Fortunately, they have a wimper’s version, I mean beginner’s version, with a doable (I think) one-fourth mile swim, even for someone (or two if Mariposai’s DS signs up too) who only swims once-a-year. That’s okay, I guess, but never, never tell anyone that it’s only one loop of the 13 mile bike course or I'll have to call it a double wimpathon.

Wish me warm water and good luck.
Regarding my 200th marathon in 8:16:36.6 at age 73 compared to Ed Whitlock’s 2:54:48 at age 73 and my first one at 3:52:15 at age 34, "That was a good day. It was never a struggle, . . . . almost like walking"
