It was an ordinary day. Sitting next to my nephew, Matt, asking him about his new tattoo. Found out that the large black #29 on his upper right arm was actually placed on his arm by an official of the Atlantic City Triathlon and is his age. He was going to compete the following day in the competition and the starting time for the first event, the one mile swim, is determined by your age. Matt and I, as well as Carol, my brother and sister-in-law and Matt’s wife Katie as well as his sister and her family, are gathered in a rental along the Jersey coast in Stone Harbor. My brother and his wife, Steve and Kathy, rented the beautiful home about 50 feet from the beach and invited their family as well as Carol and myself to stay for a few days with them. Tomorrow Matt and Katie will have to rise about 4:00 am to make the trip up the coast to Atlantic City for the 6:30 am starting time for the first leg of the race, the swim.
