cool thought

a quote from a recent Masters swimming newsletter states that:

"We love sports, both as participants and spectators, often because, for an instant, they strip away the noise of life and put us face to face with ourselves. "

And I thought about how true this is for myself. I shun wetsuits because I feel like I'm removing my body's natural ability and supplanting it with something else. If I could do triathlons in just bike shorts (and shoes), i would. I guess nothing except modesty is stopping me. and getting sun burnt.

Tomorrow I am going to swim somehow, some way. And running in the afternoon with some kids!

Yeah, I'd sunburn like a fried egg without a top. :( Otherwise it would be nice.
