The Way We Were Wednesday 1988

In 1988 I competed in the National Championship Sprint Triathlon.  I was fit and healthy, I was making really good money at a job that I didn't hate -yet.  The water was cold, resulting in one of my fastest swim times ever.  I passed one of the super elite runners on the bike leg.  The run was flat and fast.  I finished in the top half of the field.  Not bad for a 30 year old who had been 75 pounds over weight two years before.  


  1. Wow! I've never done anything like that. I do, however, love the photo with no one else around. That's something I would set up the day before and pretend ...

  2. 1988, I was (because I know you want to know this, heh) 32, had two boys 10 and 11, and was just settling into my getting fat years. I wish I had the kind of ambition and drive to do something like this. I did try riding a bike with the family but got stuck under the seat while trying to go up a mountain, okay slight incline. Children laughing while helping BH to get me unstuck. Memories......

  3. that is quite an accomplishment. but I like you the way you are now.

    @deedles - in 1988, my ex and I split up for 6 months and my maternal grandmother died. not a good year for me.
