Sketching a Triathlon

I was pretty sick this week with the flu.  Not only did it lead my to cancel my vacation to New Mexico, but it forced to stay in bed.  As a triathlete, this really sucks.  Daily exercise has become such a big part of my life, that how could I possibly stay in bed for three or four days?  Well, when you are miserable, it is actually quite easy.

Since I couldn’t physically keep up with my training, my mind was going wild, needing something to do.  So, when that artistic voice in the back of my head reminded me of my sketchpad and colored pencils, I obliged and created the triathlon sketch below:


While it isn’t a Mona Lisa, I think it is pretty cool.  It has me swimming, cycling and running.  The mental triathlon in me was satisfied!
