~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Snuck in a workout at RAC before driving up to Mpls to catch a flight home. I was startled to notice a cornfield right across from the gym. Cornfields everywhere in MN! My home town has changed drastically since I lived there. Mayo has more than doubled in size. I am hoping I left in time before my body went into serious shock from dog exposure.

I'm pretty beat from 4 days in a row of drylands. Also tired from three trips in August, with not much solid sleep. Just yoga and errands today for me. Hopefully, I'll be able to do a real swim workout on Wednesday, not just this floating around stuff I've done almost all of August. I am planning on stealing Chowmi's last workout.

Mason reopens on Thursday. I'm going to my first team practice in ages on Thursday night. I'm looking forward to having a clean, cool, quiet place to work out on Fridays as well.

4 days until the trek to college with Fort Son ...

    My parents dropped me off at the airport and wished me luck, what is this trek thing you speak of?

    lol!

    We are driving him up to Dartmouth and dropping him off. He is going on a freshman trip (hiking) and then moving himself in when he gets back (can't move in before). He's pretty self sufficient. But constantly doing his own laundry may be a bit of a shock.

    When Mason's back up and running, how many team practices will you get each week?

    Not really. I can see laundry piling up. But at some point, he'll have to break down and do it.

    We don't have a large selection. Tuesday and Thursday nights, Saturday am (D day) and Sunday am. You can also drop in and swim on your own on Fridays from 12-2.

    You totally missed out on letting him learn what a cold cruel world it is once you leave home.

    Telling him he couldn't use the college laundry service worked pretty well.

    I know what those three words mean, but I have no idea what they mean when they're strung together like that.
