I've often said, given the demands of my job, I only have time for one "extra-curricular activity." That used to be my children, until they grew up and moved out. I was a volunteer at Maymont for nearly ten years, but I gave that up when I started doing triathlons. However, I've always had a yen for writing, and occasionally I've taken an adult education class. Last summer I went to great weekend seminar at the University of Iowa, and I'd love to go back again this year. But, it's the same time as the Hy-Vee triathlon, which I also really want to do. So, again, I must choose. I'm leaning toward the triathlon -- I figure (and I hope I'm right) my body will give out before my mind does, so I can still write when triathlons are only a memory.
