Hola! Been a long time. I sure enjoy reading blogs and "catching up" but sure am a slacker when it comes to posting. But hey- let's get caught up a bit shall we?

BACK when we last spoke I had several things coming up.... some have happened and some are right around the corner like maybe in two days!

Lets see I raced in May down in Orange County. There was no real highlight of the day. Well, maybe for hanging with Suzy's family all weekend and running into superBeth. We will leave it at this. When said lake you are swimming in posts a sign like this be forewarned. It turns up a few days later. Nothing too stellar about the race. In fact it wasn't stellar but who cares!

Then a few days later "Cali Camp" started with fellow BSC teamie Kate! She recapped it very well here. We crammed a lot into a few days and I needed a few days to recover from that. But fear not, we "unloaded" correctly and were ready to ramp it again! We are already planning our next adventure. Kate is a gem and I really enjoyed her company. The beauty of it all was that I had never met Kate until 11:45pm at the airport when I picked her up but immediately felt as if I had known her awhile!

This week is taper time. Taper Schmaper. Race weekend coming up. First 1/2 IM in years. The best part... I get to do it on my new toy. Not only racing this weekend but my brother and sister in law and kiddies are in town for my Favorite cousin's wedding so this weekend is jam packed full of fun.

But I truly am saving the best for last. Next Wednesday is the start of
smashfestsufferfestislandstyle with my BSC! CANNOT WAIT. Is it the 27th yet?

Have a great weekend. Happy Summer Solstice!


  1. No sharks... Just DOLPHINS. I was telling Nalani today that my mission is to have you swim with dolphins. Next week!!!! AND I am looking forward to Camo Stories! :)

  2. Have a good weekend, and a good trip on the islands.

  3. Omigosh, you're gonna KILL that race! I can't wait to read the race report (that's my not-so-subtle hint that we're expecting a race report). I'm *still* jealous of your trip to Kona (take lotsa pics please!). And I can't WAIT for our next adventure! It's gonna hurt! :)

  4. Good luck this weekend! And what a fun new toy. :) And and and HAVE FUN in Hawaii!!!
