“The follies a man regrets most are the ones he didn’t commit when he could.”
Port St. Lucie is a fast growing city less than two hours by car from Miami, Fl. It is well-known for its PGA 54 hole-golf club and home for varied celebrities including Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, Megan Fox, Ace Hood, Vanilla Ice, Din Thomas and Matthew Underwood. It is also the Mets Baseball Club Spring Training ground. And it is also the site of my latest folly (which I won’t regret) – the 2575 World Championship triathlon which I’ve joined (my first and only.) My poor wife took this photo at the finish line. She was with my two sons who later told me their mom was so worried she thought I drowned in the Club Med Sandpiper Bay. How I survived this 25.75 km swim, bike and run ordeal without professional training and coaching is a story in itself. Please don’t ask me for my standing in the race. It was enough that I finished. Well, if you love marathons, triathlons, and all kinds of sports, come to Florida. One of the main reasons we had moved here is the weather. This is an understatement.
