A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Second "Tri"

"The Best Daughter" and I liked the Bethany Beach Triathlon so much last year, that we signed up to do it again this year! I must admit though, I got quite apprehensive on doing the open water swim (and even considered downgrading from a triathlon to duathlon), but the entire thing got the better of me, and I carried on as originally planned. I was so nervous about the swim that I couldn't and didn't blog yesterday as much as I wanted to. 

But it all worked out in the end. The beautiful warm morning gave way to an awesome experience that I am so thankful I fully participated in the entire event, and sharing it with Olivia to boot!

Here are the best points:
* water temperature 75 degrees!
* water quite calm for ocean swimming (no sharks or whales!)
* Olivia won her age group and was 8th woman overall (5 min. faster over last year)
* I finished 5th in my age group and improved my time by 8 minutes over last year's race
* I just may have to sign up for next year!?
