In Addition To Art

In case you ever wondered what I do in my "spare time" I have been training for the Danskin Women's Triathlon for the past 11 weeks, and Sunday is the day! This Mother's day morning race will be the second year I have participated, I hope to beat my time this year. The race takes place at Disney's Fort Wilderness Camp Grounds here in Florida.

This sprint triathlon is a half mile swim, a 12 mile bike ride, and a 5K run (3.1 miles). The race starts at 7am on Sunday and participants are sent out in "waves." Typically they start with elite and pro athletes first, and then by age group, so I may be hitting the water around 7:15-7:30 if you want to send good thoughts my way.

My favorite color in art and life is purple, and you can see that's the color of my tri-suit.  Last year my age group had purple swim caps and I took this as a good sign. After all, what woman does not want to be fashionably color coordinated??


  1. OH! I didn't know they had that here, or maybe I mean still.... I did that once in CA a long time ago... I wonder if I could still do it? Maybe next year would be a good time to find out. Good luck to you, have a great time and good luck on a personal best.

  2. They still have it and it's in many cities, check out my link and see if there is one near you. Everyone at all levels of fitness can participate. some folks even walk the run, it's just about finishing and you can take it to any level you want!

  3. I had no idea you did this - you must be wonderfully fit! Now I'm even more amazed at what you do :) I didn't read this until it was over so I hope you did well and had a great time - and that you are not too sore.

  4. Good luck! I look forward to meeting and learning from you at the Asheville workshop. - Sharon Willen

  5. Sharon, THANKS for the luck! I look forward to meeting YOU in Asheville! I'll let you know how I did. This means I can sleep in a little for the rest of the month, maybe...


thank you for taking the time to read and comment! :)
