Triathlon

No, not me, silly, I just went there to watch, that’s all.  It was nothing to do with the men in Lycra, I assure you, more to do with the summer opening of the open air pool.  I love our open air pool; it has helped a lot with my nervous swimming, mostly because it is so big, and they don’t let children in at the same time as adults, so I have plenty of room to panic perfect my stroke.  The pool was glorious:
