Several people commented on yesterday's blog about the alligators. Let me assure you I never felt threatened or in any danger. They were at a distance. The signs told us if one was on the trail, to turn around and I'm sure we would have. We did stop running and walked slowly single file around a mom, dad, and babe crane and another single crane that were in the path.
I am very reluctant to swim in lakes around here, though. Friends have tried to assure me that when a group of people are swimming, alligators don't attack, but I would not feel safe. I suspect if I ever decide to do a triathlon it will either have the swim portion in a pool or in the ocean.
Today Gwen and I went to the YMCA and played outside. Then I did 50 minutes of elliptical while she played with friends in the nursery. It was great to see Aquagirl and my friend Bertie there, too! Tomorrow I will run again. Life is good here, even as we wait for hubby's surgery. Hope life is good where you are, too!!
