So one may be asking...I've not heard anything about the swim thing you're attempting to learn. Well, my friends, I am happy to report that this past Sunday I trekked up to Riverbank to the big people's pool [otherwise known as the olympic sized, 50m pool]. It was definitely a lot harder as I will atest that 50 meters is a long ways...I kept thinking am I done yet? I'm really starting to believe in myself in the pool though...now don't get me wrong...it's still quite a chore as I have to think "do I breathe now" and "hey arm...you're not supposed to do that"...amongst other items of importance. But I have to remember...running was not such a "ho hum" activity at first. I consider it a victory that now I don't "cringe" at the thought of swimming...it's more of a "hmmph it's a swim day." This doesn't surprise me though as I've always been the 'go getter' and a challenge is always nice....keeps you on your toes!
In other news, Hood to Coast is just four months from today! Woohoo! I now have 9 team members which leaves 3 spots to fill. And even more exciting,....I've booked airfare to Portland as well as hotel rooms for the race for my team. Up next:
