The Campsgiving Triathlon

Both Lake Huron and the air temperature were a bit chilly for a swim, so instead at Pinery Provincial Park I ran, cycled and paddled! Plus, of course, a ton of hiking - we did 7 out of 9 interpretive trails (one of which I ran), tried out a tandem bike on the 14km Savannah multi-use trail, and got our new-to-us canoe in the water of the Old Ausable Channel for a couple of glorious hours.

She may not be much to look at, but she's watertight and she was free!

The legs are slowly starting to come back, and having set a 7sec PR for 200scy free in the pool on Thursday night, I'm pretty sure I didn't lose much by missing a couple of swims over the weekend, and even if I had, the sunsets alone were worth it.

The best kind of Thanksgiving is one that gives you even more for which to be thankful, and this was certainly the case.
