My husband is amazing. He finished his triathlon today. And while he had a great experience on the course - and finished with a very impressive time - he was humbled to discover that a 78-year old man beat him by two minutes.
I told him that if he keeps practicing, just think how good he will be 36 years from now.
William, meanwhile, was so inspired by what he saw on the race course today, that he came home and started training immediately. He told me that once the training wheels come off his bike, he wants to sign up for his first race.
And, would it be OK if he wore his Superman cape?
If Charlie keeps up with these triathlons - and our children follow in his footsteps ...
I love the idea that 36 years from now, they could be taking the triathlon race circuit by storm in their matching superhero capes.
Personally, I think that would be a really good look.
