It’s been sort of a strange year here, one where I’ve seen more than a few reminders about life being short. I’ve tried to use these reminders as an impetus to try new things that might be outside my comfort zone (see: 33 Dresses).
So when my swimming buddy came to me and asked me if I’d be available to do the 2.4 mile swim leg of a distance relay triathlon being held at Lake Tahoe in August, I knew I had to say yes, if only because such an opportunity doesn’t come around all that often, not in the town where I live. Plus, life is short, so why not scare challenge myself?
Yup. I’m doing it. All I need now is a wetsuit. And some time actually swimming in the lake before August 25th.
