Up at 7:00 AM
Say hello to Bret and Jennifer at 7:35 AM
Running by 7:40 AM
About 5 miles in 45 minutes (not a great pace, but I'm improving)
In the pool by 9:00 AM
1 hour and 30 minutes and 2,200 meters later...
Praying for donations to come in 1:30 PM (just sent my second fundraising letter today)
Thankful to those who've given their financial support, and to my mentors and coaches who have helped me progress toward becoming a real deal triathlete.
Not done by a long shot - fundraising or training.
Overall very, very thankful.

In Rio Del Mar / Aptos, just a stones throw from our main office, sits the famous Cement Ship (the USS Palo Alto), permanently anchored and bearing the brunt of the Pacific. (Photo courtesy of Flickr)
I took in this view on my Saturday morning run. I learned a bit of the history of this ship, one of only three made during World War I.
"Cement ship" - kind of boggles the mind; I just had to share.
