Just to push the last one down

I don't have too much interesting to say, but figured I needed to push that last post down a bit so people weren't scared when they saw that picture. I'm glad a lot of you got a laugh out of it; I sure did!

Yesterday after work I went for an easy jog. It had started raining in the afternoon but by the time I started, it was just a light drizzle. It must've been the calm before the storm because the skies absolutely opened up and I got DUMPED on. I seriously don't think it could've rained any harder. I stupidly decided to run on the trails in Bond Park near my house thinking that the rain wouldn't be hitting me so hard, but I didn't think that the trails would be such a mess. It was more like running through a river.

On my way home, we always pass this house where the people sit on their front porch and smoke. We always wave and they wave back, all of us probably thinking interesting thoughts about the other I'm sure. I can't imagine what they thought yesterday as I came plodding by like a drowned rat. They did ask where my other half was - it's like we're all almost friends ;)

I slept in Monday and Wednesday for masters. I never feel guilty about it right when I start the off season. But I do like swimming so I'll get back into it very soon. It's the waking up so early that I don't like so much, but whaddya gonna do?

I still love that photo. :) Hey - its the off season (lucky duck!) Do NOT under any circumstances feel guilty about missing Masters. But...its a nice change to know that you're liking swimming - that's good!

Congrats again on a great season!
