After the Glory

The life of the aging Everyman Athlete was summed up by my eight year old at a triathlon this past summer. I had just had a pretty good day and managed the overall win against a group of much younger guys. As I staggered a bit in the finish area, feeling the effects of the day, my son ran up and asked, “Did you win?”


“Cool, Dad…..can we go swimming now?”

You gotta love perspective. •
