Talk amongst yourselves

Tonight we had our big Tri Team carb-load dinner in preparation for the Nautica Malibu Triathlon this weekend. This year they added a new award for the "Tri Team Member of the Year". And who did they select for the inaugural recipient? Yours Truly.

I am not a medal-contender at my races. But I have so much fun participating in this sport. I love that I can run alongside (well, OK, maybe 50 yards behind) a group of Ironmen in a grueling workout one day and then be cutting out construction paper for some silly race sign the next. I love the pre-race and post-race get-togethers. I love cheering people on at races as a spectator. And it's all because of my Tri Team. I can't believe that I can call these amazing people "friends".

What can I say... I'm a little verklempt.

Well, well! It's nice to know that your hard work is appreciated. Congratulations! Although you realize that your curmudgeonly cover has now been blown, right?
