So I've started to swim. Yes, that thing where you go in a body of water and go back and forth. The water form of running. Sort of? Let me preface this with I can think of about a million things I'd rather do then swim. It just is not something I enjoy at this time...a lot due to not being good at it. Monday I went with my friend SH to swim...since I knew she was a newbie too. I did 540 yards off of zero practice which left me with the confidence I needed to know...I could complete a quarter mile swim. Another sign that the triathlon is in my future... I swam again on Thursday evening for 25 minutes and lived to tell the tale! Yay! And then again today with Sempre Libera and pink monkey after a 5.25 mile run in the AM. Triathlon here I come! Although perhaps Olympics...because according to a random passerby we looked like "3 Olympians." ha! So maybe we are the three M&M Olympians (see Sempre Libera's post)
So let's see this week....the plaza caught fire, there's talk of a cookie olympics, and Bode Miller is still DQ'ing!
