It's my birthday today. I'm 44. I started my day in near (happy) tears when my 6 year old gave me the sweetest card I have ever seen. He's not very into drawing and coloring and I knew that he worked very hard on it.

I was a little stiff at work-out today. I guess that's what happens when there is no warmdown after a 400 IM. I was really happy to make the kick set. Everyone else was wearing fins but I never wear fins (I had a pair that I loved that I kept for 20+ years-- they were issued to me freshmen year of college. After they bit the dust a few years ago, I haven't been able to bring myself to get a new pair.) I'm going to spend the evening at the prelims of the summer league championship swim meet. Don't feel sorry though. I went out for an amazing birthday dinner on Satuday. Here's a pic of the dessert. It's a Chocolate Bag. Yes, it's a bag made out of chocolate and filled with goodness.Click image for larger version.

    We often ask ourselves questions what we'd do if... I know that if meteors were falling and sharks were attacking I couldn't swim that fast to save the Earth. I admire your speed, strength, and focus.
