June Theme Day - Zest

ZEST is the theme for June amongst the City Daily Photo group...I've been pondering how the heck I was going to participate in this one until....

(click on photo to enlarge)

Nick participated in his 4th triathlon on Saturday and I tagged along as his personal photographer and thought, "hey, this is ZEST"!

So, what is Zest? According to Merriam-Webster Zest is this:

zest noun \ˈzest\
: lively excitement : a feeling of enjoyment and enthusiasm

: a lively quality that increases enjoyment, excitement, or energy

: small pieces of the skin of a lemon, orange, or lime that are used to flavor food

The whole tri thing gets Nick going. I don't get it but hey, to each his own right?!

This was the "Off The Rails" tri in Vinton. For more info on that Click Here and to see more Zesty photos, visit City Daily Photo!

  12. My wife has run many races including two marathons. I don't understand that. I really don't understand people who do triathlons. But more power to them! They've got more zest than I'll ever have! Darn!

  13. Congratulations to Nick! Good shots!

    I like seeing races like this, but I don't go for it myself. I get in a lot of walking every day, and swimming most days, but not competitively, and not running.

  15. I was also getting a little worried about the "zest" theme. You definitely found a good subject. I don't know how/why people participate in these kinds of events, but I'm sure it has something to do with zest! :)
