A Day In The Life Of CTER.....In Pictures

Today is normally reserved for The Athlete's Plate but I decided to postpone it by one week to present to you this great idea. Recently JM over at Caution: Redhead Running posted a day in her life.  I commented on it and she said that I should do one as well. Not one to back down from challenges I decided to make Monday the day I took photos of a day of my life.  Monday also happened to be the day that I swam 3,500 yards or 2 miles and managed to do it in 1 hour and 5 minutes.  This was a breakthrough day in my training and I am now very happy to have captured this day in pictures. But before  we get to the photos I want to thank Beth over at Shut Up and Run for posting about the Fitbloggers Conference.  As soon as I was done reading I sent in my application for a partial scholarship and within an hour I had a reply email that I had been awarded the partial scholarship.  So I will be going to Boulder, Colorado in June to attend this great event and I couldn't be happier.  There will be photos and videos from the conference for sure. So without further delay here is my day in pictures: [caption id="attachment_1387" align="aligncenter" width="305" caption="Wake Up and Time to have breakfast #1"][/caption]   [caption id="attachment_1388" align="aligncenter" width="305" caption="Breakfast #1 - Ezekial Sesame Bread Toasted, 1/2 banana sliced on top of chocolate peanut butter with 8oz of coffee and 16oz of water"][/caption]   [caption id="attachment_1389" align="aligncenter" width="305" caption="Gym #1 for a 3500 yard swim done in....."][/caption]   [caption id="attachment_1390" align="aligncenter" width="305" caption="....1 hour 5 minutes equated to 1 hour 18 minutes for 2.4 miles"][/caption]   [caption id="attachment_1391" align="aligncenter" width="305" caption="Back Home for Breakfast #2 of Granola, Greek Yogurt, 1/2 sliced banana, blueberries, blackberries, 8oz decaf, 8oz oj, 16oz water"][/caption]   [caption id="attachment_1392" align="aligncenter" width="305" caption="Gym #2 for strength and core after dropping Chico off at school & wishing my wife a great day"][/caption]   [caption id="attachment_1393" align="aligncenter" width="305" caption="After a morning of sales calls, quotes and lead generation it's lunch time of polenta, tamarind tempeh and sweet potatoes."][/caption]   [caption id="attachment_1397" align="aligncenter" width="305" caption="Afternoon snack of homemade fig bars."][/caption]

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
