My sister has long warned me…


that once I get to a certain age,  1 of 3 things will happen:  either I will go bald, or my breasts will become freakishly large, or I will begin to lose my mind.

I am now 40.

My stylist (or as I like to call him, Eric the Magnificent), says I have great hair, and loads of it.

And I have been “amply endowed” for quite a while, and age has not made much of a difference.

So, I figured that MY fate would be to lose my mind.

And today, that happened.

As of 8:02 Alaska Time, I am officially registered for the Gold Nugget Triathlon.

On May 15th, I will swim, bike and run my way through a course with 1499 other women.

I have been training (loosely) for this for a few months now, but am nowhere near ready.  Good thing there are 10 weeks to race day.

My dear friends, Myrna, Lisa, and Kristine are registered too, and I am looking forward to the next couple months when we train together, and especially that moment when we all meet up at the finish line.
