Did you know the USMS forum sends you a text message on your BD? Very cool I'd say!
I just had 20 or so of my favorite 5th graders come down and sing Happy BD to me!!!! I got tears in my eyes cause it made me feel so special!!!
WELL..................tomorrow is Big Shoulder's 5K. I decided to go ahead and work today. I found a couple NASTI friends who couldn't leave till after 5:00p.m. so we will basically sleep/ swim/come home.
I am scared shi_l_ss!!! The water is 64 degrees currently and they're expecting rain storms tomorrow morning.
I feel like I'm in good shape and could do a personal best 5K(it would be my 1st race in 55-59) but I'm not sure I can make a 5K in water that cold. I took a nice Blue Seventy wetsuit from the store and practiced with it last night. I didn't like the constricting nature of the suit; it really pressed hard on my chest. I'm just torn about what to do. If I don't wear the wetsuit I will wear my BlueSeventy Nero and 2 caps. I probably won't make a decision till right before the race although right now I'm leaning toward the wetsuit.minutes. I wish I could go up there early today and try it out!
