With my apologies to Jenny Joseph.......
When I am an old woman, I shall ride a purple bike, with a red helmet that doesn't go and doesn't suit me.
I shall spend my pension on tech clothes and fancy running shoes, and shot bloks and say we have no money for butter.
I shall pay MANY dollars in entry fees for the pleasure of spending hours to swim, bike and run and proudly display my finisher medals and race numbers on my wall.
I shall get up at BEFORE the crack of dawn to swim in icy waters, bike in the wind, run in subzero temps and bring out the best in myself.
I shall not be concerned if I finish 3rd, 14th or even last.
When I am an old woman, I will ride a purple bike with a red helmet that doesn't match.
BUT....When I am an old woman I will be a Triathlete!
Happy New Year!
