earliest swim pic, age 4?

My older brother said I was bad luck since I was born on Friday the 13th (he wanted a brother and ended up with me, another sister).  Scarred for life.  Both of us!

This Friday, December 13th, I turn 50.  Wow.  How did that happen?  And what’s it supposed to feel like?  I don’t feel 50 – that sounds so…, well, OLD.  Where do I go from here?  Oh no, am I having a mid-life (or later) crisis?  Does that mean I get to buy a mini?  Um, pretty sure I’m not getting a mini.

What I think I’ll do is go to spin class in the morning, work for 3 hours and then get beat up (in a good way) swimming with Cambridge Masters.  Sounds like a perfect birthday to me!  Who needs all that mental anguish about getting older anyway?

If anybody is interested in a really fun read (much better than this drivel), check out my brother-in-law’s blog post about signing up for IM Mt Tremblant.  Warning:  sarcasm and humor!

As for next summer’s triathlon season:  I can’t believe my sister has already signed me up for a Team EnVision relay (I swim, she bikes, and we beg another team member to run).  I guess she didn’t hear me when I said no races.  I guess I didn’t hear me, either!

Happy Holidays
