I am sitting there cocking my head and saying "Hi!" and "How are you?" and "Pretty Katie" just as cute as hell when it suddenly occurs to me, My God, I'm talking to a bird! It is a sobering realization for a man of my attitudes, not dissimilar to the shock a dog must feel when someone turns a hose on him during the act of coupling.

Jill Newman took a leap of faith in 1996, leaving a promising law career for the uncertainly of trying to win a spot on the 2000 U.S. Olympic triathlon team. Saturday, Newman will go for her payoff at the U.S. Olympic trials in Dallas. Only two of 25 women will make the team that will represent the United States in Sydney in September. Newman hopes to be one of them, but even if she isn't she says she has no regrets about quitting her high-paying job with a Newport Beach law firm.

Scott Tinley provided affirmation and a sense of symmetry Sunday for the 10th Performing Arts Center Triathlon. Proving that he who comes around and goes around can prevail, Tinley, who won the first Mission Viejo event, finished first again a decade later. Tinley, 38, the sport's first and foremost superstar from Del Mar, may have been overstating it a bit when he crossed the finish line and gasped, "More important than the Mazda is the bragging rights for a year."

Southwest High School sprinter Vickie Williams was instructed by her coaches to run the 200-meter dash on Friday in tennis shoes rather than track spikes. "Vickie's had a touch of tendinitis," Southwest Coach Fred Sills said. "And we were running on a good surface." Williams responded by running a county-best 25.49 on the all-weather Southwestern College track in the Metro South Bay preliminary track and field meet. Her time bettered Morse's April Freow, who had led the county with a 25.71.

Ron Cooke had run the 120-mile relay from Baker to Las Vegas over desert back roads, but he was seeking a tougher challenge. "I felt a desert race ought to include some desert," said Cooke, a deputy with the Orange County marshal's office, "and not be just a run on asphalt." So Cooke spent long weekends in 1995 on desert reconnaissance missions, mapping out an alternative course.
