Last Sunday my 15 year old son and I (pic) swam from Alcatraz to San Francisco (pic). About 800 people jumped in the water at what is called the Alcatraz Sharkfest Swim. Many gave up and went home in shame. Not us … we actually finished. And my son was nice enough to stay with me as he clearly could have left me in the dust. (I should have never let him get involved in competitive swimming when he was younger).
After the Alcatraz race we flew to Los Angeles. Sunday, the next morning, I did the Malibu Triathlon with my friend Joe. To my surprise, I did my fastest race ever finishing 13th in my age group of 119 athletes. Makes me wonder what is possible if I really trained. Nope not me … work is my number one hobby!
