Happy Tuesday
I wore heels to work today, and thought to myself "hmm...it's nice to get dressed up just because...." that temporary moment of reflection was interrupted when I realized in the car that I was A. still wearing my heart rate monitor B. roadID bracelet was on my other wrist and that C. I had subconsiously put on my compression calf sleeves underneath my skinny jeans....while laughing at myself I pegged a HUGE pothole which hurled my coffee onto the floor and coincidentally the boots that started this whole thought process. Ha. Oh well. Happy Tuesday!

Have been having some really good training days in the pool lately and other venues of life are good. I <3 my roomie, and our outrageously inappropriate conversations / explosive laughter episodes which according to the old, single ladies who neighbor us...probally occur far too frequently. Miss Deely is still the cutest yellow lab on the face of the planet. All my swimmers at work are getting rather beastly, I'm pretty proud of them and their progress. The OWLs are inexplicably cool and summer staff / plans are epic. Kayak demo for the shop (www.weu.com) went really well - over 80 different boats for people to try on the water. I registered for 5150 US championships elite amateur (umm...first place is 5 grand and a new car!?!)...and Bridget is going to come with me.....to Iowa!
