So THIS...

... is what your freestyle stroke should look like! Take a little lesson from Ian Thorpe! Talk about pulling down a butt-load, (technical term), of water! Nice.



Health update! No news. Everything works. Goin in to see the specialist on Friday to be poked, prodded, and scanned. In the meantime training continues at a lower volume this week while preparing for the Eugene 1/2 Marathon on Sunday the 4th. My allergies are completely out of control right now and seem to have settled on making my lungs pay the price. I swear I sound like I smoke at LEAST one pack a day... and its freakin SEXY! Just ask me. Anyway, despite that, I don't think the allergies have significantly impacted my training. I just feel tired and cranky and stuffed up all the time... which is fun.

You know what I like? A really good haircut.

In defiance of nature and pollen, I did my last long, fast run on Sunday. This after spending the hours between 7:30 am and 1:00 pm listening to my three children natter at me while I single-handedly assembled a new trampoline! Yeah. Even the instructions said that it takes, "3 adults in good physical condition". Good times. Anyway, during the heat of the day I threw down 9.4 miles in 1:06:04. I was pretty happy with that and it gave me a bit of a confidence boost... I wasn't sure how much fitness I had lost with all the illness... so I guess its time to put it out there...

I'll finish Sunday's race in 1:30:00 or less. Some might argue that that isn't enough of a stretch for me. But notice I said, "or less". Believe me, if its in me, I'll crush it.

There ya have it! It's out there... no hiding for me...


Soccer season is in full swing and once again I've had the pleasure of coaching Lila's team. Notice my sweet, precious, beautiful, smart, athletic little girl and the skill with which she dominates THREE of her opponents! Oh yeah.


Breathe...

Lila takes after her beastly aunt. Good luck at your race. We like Race Rob just fine.
