It turns out that John is also in the St. John's Indoor Triathlon tomorrow at St. John's. My heat is at 10:30 am and his at 3 pm. If you are extremely bored or want to watch some good athletic competition, come out and root us on. I am still nervous about the swim, but at least it is in a pool and I can stop and catch my breath. I have already checked out the bikes and the area and I should be good to go. We run 3 miles around the little track which is 33 laps. Fortunately, we will have a counter. I am planning on going under an hour, but I am thinking that I may be able to get under 55 minutes. We shall see. I just don't want to bonk in the swim. I will let you know what happens.Have a great weekend and make sure and get outdoors even with the change in the weather. Brrrr.

Things have been absolutely crazy lately and I have not been able to do much on the blog, let alone anything else. I was able to get out last night and do a social run with the Tulsa Running Club hosted by Fleet Feet. I ended up running with a guy named John who is taking the same swimming clinic I am doing next Tuesday with Karlyn Pipe-Nielsen at St. John's. She holds over 200 Master swim records and has been the Masters swim athlete of the year two years running. I am excited about it with nervous apprehension. I know I need to improve, but I don't want to make a fool out of myself. I guess you have to start where you are at.
