Also Project Runway is Keeping Me Afloat

“It’s August,” Shef announced yesterday.

And sure enough, it is. That means the following things are lurking: school (I already had one preparatory dream), grad school (good lord, when will it end?), and my triathlon racing debut.

My friend Molly has strong opinions about the triathlon. When I told her I was up to 2400 yards in the pool, she told me that was “gross.”

“Hey, you should be happy for me!” I insisted.

“You’re right,” she sighed. “After all, your training is the only part of your summer that hasn’t completely fallen apart.”

2400 yards is a lot. KUDOS!

I'm thinking of doing that athlon where you ski, then shoot guns. Can't remember the prefix.

Oh my! That is so far!!! I remember being forced to do a mile swim in gym class when I was in high school. Awesome job!!!

Thank god for the tri-athlon! Between you and Jdoc I feel that so many calories are being burned in this world that I'm completely justified in eating this scone.

Summers are too crazy for routines to be formed. That's the excuse I'm using today.
