DIGRI  =  RIGID,  DOVIA  =  AVOID,  GTREER  =  REGRET,  TACELT  =  CATTLE   —   Giving us:  IGIAVIRETT

Clue/Question:  After he trained by running, cycling and swimming, the athlete decided to . . .

Answer:  GIVE IT A TRI

(Nice homophonic/heterographic pun!  I don’t have the mental toughness to even seriously consider competing in a triathlon.  I’m pretty much a couch-potato.  Very sad. 

The clue words were jumbled very well.  Two brand new clue words, today!  ralis95 will be adding both “rigid” and “regret” to the clue word database.  Answer letter layout was alright.  I woulda swapped “avoid” and “rigid”, but that’s just me.  The cartoon and the clue/question tell you everything you need to know.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sorry, people!  I don’t seem to have it, today.  I was playing around with it starting with TO HAVE, and with the author being JAMES HOWELL(?), but the rest is not falling into place.  No single letter words, no THE, no double letter words, and nothing ending in ING – that I can see.  Two cups of coffee, and still nothing!  Anybody have any good hints to get me started???   —   YUR
