No Excuses

It’s been quite some time since I last wrote. More than a month, probably? I’ve been trying to write the reasons why I haven’t done it, but I just don’t like how it comes out and just the thought of having to change the copy around to make it sound perfectly “sound”, means digging again into wounds that are still very sensitive to the touch. So, I will let that draft sit in its designated box until I have the nerve to rescue it and make some sense out of it.

What I wanted to share with you today was this picture of Hector Picard and myself.

Tonight I had the honor of meeting this inspirational Triathlete at Miami Pace‘s monthly event. I had seen Hector in many of the races I’ve been in, but it was on the Egg Hunt Triathlon this month that I was able to see him up close, as opposed to the usual glimpse you typically get at a race while crossing paths at transition, on the course or at the finish line. That day I didn’t race. I was asked to help out with photographing the triathletes at the Finish Line and the Awards Ceremony. I was literally and figuratively watching the race from a different lens.

Through my lens, I saw Hector get in the water. I saw Hector get out of the water. Then I saw Hector come through the finish line. Then I saw Hector on the podium receiving a medal. Believe me, I saw Hector.

I will not tell you the details of why Hector is an inspiration to everyone here in the Miami Triathlon community. I will not bore you with my reasonings. I will let you see for yourself.

This beautiful man, has the energy and will power to move mountains, with an incredible sense of humor and that great childish smile you see on his face.

I urge you to check out Hector (click here, and here & PLEASE click here too) and report back. That means, leave me a note.

There are no excuses to live life at the fullest.
