Gondola Greg Runs a "Tri"

For some time now, I've been training for a triathlon.
Along with rowing - running, biking and swimming have become a regular part of my week.

Since I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in early January, my doctor told me to exercise more. As a result, I've been on a quest to get as healthy as possible, and setting goals has played a big role in that quest.

So tomorrow (Sunday, April 19th) I will participate in my first triathlon.
It's a "sprint triathlon", with each segment being shorter than the standard "Ironman" race, but wrapped together, they make for a nice challenge - at least they do for a newbie like me.
As if that's not enough, I'm scheduled to row a cruise or two later on that night!
We'll see how that goes.

Wish me luck, my friends, and don't get angry if it takes a day or so for my next post.
I may feel the need to sleep for a while.
