This morning at swim, I could feel that summer is coming to a close. It was the last swim for the summer master's session. We swam outside and it was dark because the sun had not risen yet. The sign of shortening days.

The group has become close and alot of motivation to me and everyone in it. There are several doing their first Oly this weekend and another next weekend. Also there are 3 others besides me doing their first Iron. The excitement and chatter is continous to the point Coach has to tell us to focus and be quiet. One guy brought in bagels, cream cheese and doughnuts for everyone. I feel lucky to have found such a group of friends.

To those racing at Pleasant Prairie---enjoy. Also to my friend doing Chicago Accenture next weekend-it will be the experience of a lifetime.

Waddling and trying to hang on to summer.......................

Yes, this time of the year is always a little sad, having to say goodbye to being able to start a run at 5am without a shadow of darkness. But on the flipside? THe best running weather is yet to come. (At least in my book.)

What you need is a little home in Tuscon. Then the year would never end.

Well, I wish I could say summer was ending in FL. I can't wait until late November when temps are reasonable for running but by then, my big 2009 races will be over - DOH!
