THE QUIET BEFORE......

The quiet and calm by the Ohio River was almost eerie as the sun came up. The water was calm but a breeze was beginning to blow. All the tents were empty.


Tomorrow , this place by the river will be transformed. Tomorrow in this spot people will be changed by an experience that will last a lifetime.I am not just talking about the athletes but everyone involved.


I was lucky this morning to run into some fellow bloggers by the river at the swim. The talk was off the river and the current. Yesterday during his swim, Iron Pol ruptured an eardrum but was hoping for a good swim today. Mary Sunshine was all smiles as she entered the water. Geek Girl and Sweet Baboo were anxious to get in and try out the river for a second day. Iron Snoopy (who I ran into later) had some issues with motion sickness.
Duane also was there helping to cheer on the swimmers.

Tom (Iron Pol), Misty (GeekGirl) , Brian ( Sweet Baboo) and me (Waddler)

Good luck to everyone tomorrow on your journey. May you reap the reward of all that you have invested.

Waddling in anticipation of a great experience tomorrow...............
