Thank you to everyone here for all your kind words of encouragement, support and congratulations.
A concussion earlier in the year, (with which I am still dealing with after affects), 2 back injuries, a bleeding saddle sore and an unexpected change in schedule disrupted my training this past year, but I am so glad I did not quit, and I went out there and gave it my best and kept under my goal of 2 1/2 hours.
Every triathlon I do from here until my last one will be to recognize my one-time classmate, colleague and friend Doc Scott, who is doing battle with much more than I.
Again, thank you all, back to training no later than Thursday for Beware of the Barracuda in September.
BTW, I really wish I had taken off from work today - I could go right back to bed.
