I am always amazed. At what? People wanting to have long conversations with you in the locker room and their timing. Today, it was after my shower with just a towel on. She is in my master's swim class and we had just finished a good workout.

The discussion was about 2009 races and goals. She is new to the sport also but much younger in her 30's. Her goal to do several sprint tri's and maybe a couple of olympics. The rest of her goal is to win her age group in most and overall at least in one. She has the ability and certainly the confidence.

Next came my year. She wanted to know my goal for my Iron distance and I told her to finish. She was surprised that I did not expect more out of myself. Then came her comment --" You're not quite 60 yet are you?" followed by "I have heard it is hard to lose weight after the big 5-0"

It was then that I turned the hair dryer on to finish drying my hair. She just talked louder over the noise. Finally -she got the hint. I was not upset just amazed. Some people have no idea how what they say sounds.

House(Hubby) is having a good response the the trial neurostimulator. It looks promising.

Waddling on another cold day.....
