Labor Day Triatholon

I've never been to a Labor Day Triathlon.

 I was supposed to have done one last year but it fell through. I just learned about another area triathlon scheduled for Labor Day. I am really excited to hear it and would love to do it but I work on my feet all day Saturdays and Sundays and just feel like that might be tough to do the day following working all weekend. And only ten days after another area tri that I am supposed to do. One of these days maybe I'll be strong enough to do both of them that close together (and they will hopefully continue having it on Labor Day!) That I'd like to see.

I've never been on a crippled ship before.

 Living not too far from the port of Galveston, you can imagine there was lots of talk about the crippled ship Triumph in our area. I've heard conflicting stories as to just how nightmarish the time on board was. While everyone agrees that it was not the trip they imagined, I have heard numerous times that the crew did do the best they could in the given circumstances. I do feel sorry for all the folks on board, crew and passengers alike. I wonder just how they got all their gear home from Alabama. What about all those folks who had packed extra items for their time away-things like scuba gear, equestrian riding apparel, hiking gear, golf equipment or other specialty items they might have wanted for their adventure abroad. Whatever happened I know that each person's tale is similar yet unique. I do hope that all those on board are safe and well reimbursed for their misadventure...

 That I'd like to see.
