ildlife run at the prairie was a great start to Saturday. I met my friend Ronda at the prairie. It was beautiful with the sun. There was a huge assortment of people from runners to bikers to nature photographers. We even saw deer. After a 5.5 mile run, we headed home, showered, the met to head for our next event.

etsuit shopping was next on the list.I wore my swimsuit under my clothes. We headed to the first stop which was a bike store. The only brand that they carried was 2XU. I got instruction from the saleslady on how to put it on. Just think pantyhose. It fit and felt good. The neck was loose. Ronda is doing Steelhead also and needs to get one also but is just enjoying watching. I decided not to buy the first one that I tried on.
The next shop was a swim store. The staff was lame. Their only brand was Quintana Roo. It just didn't fit right. I decided to do some more internet research. I hoped that I did not make a mistake not buying that first suit.
ater is where I began my Sunday. Masters swim was a good workout. I felt alot better today in the pool than I did on Thursday. The end of the workout was quick 25s. I survived 4 of them while most of the others did the full 6. But I don't think that I fell as far behind as I usually do.

aterfall Glen is where Iron Snoopy and I went to bike after swim. It's not that far from the gym. We had brought our mountain bikes with us so we could head right there. The parking lot was almost full when we got there. When we were on the trails it wasn't bad at all. The reason that I like going here is that it is one of the few places that has hills.
etsuit shopping again was next. Iron Snoopy and I headed for Mission Bay Multisport. They had an unbelievable selection. The owner waited on us and quickly picked out a Blue-Seventy Suit to try on. It fit great. Not one complaint. I got such a good deal that I was able to buy a Tri-suit also. I was psyched.
I can't imagine a better weekend.
Waddling and worn out...........

Congrats on getting the wetsuit! I have my first tri in October and I'm terrified I won't be able to find a wetsuit to fit given my current size (24/26W in street clothing). My only hope is that I can drop enough weight before then to be able to find something that will work.

Thanks for sharing the wetsuit shopping info - I'm dreading that particular purchase. There's not exactly a plethora of shops offering suits for the extra short size 20 girls.
