Endless Pool

I don't have the ability to post the video, but trust me when I say that today's Gatorade Swim in the Ohio River was interesting. The comment heard most often when describing the swim was "Endless Pool." And for the upstream portions, that's exactly what it was.

It was incredible watching the swimmers trying to make headway and getting nowhere. And watching people going downstream at an incredible clip without taking a single stroke. At our blogger dinner, the concensus was that the swim change was the right choice.

After checking in, we hit the expo for a short bit, and I managed to walk about about $150 lighter, the proud owner of some sharp looking IM Louisville attire.

And now, since my daughter is taking her clothes and dancing, I have to sign off.

Yeah, we're raising a couple of strippers too. Good luck with that!

And oh, yeah, good luck with the Big Day too!!

Nice. I trust your training. You are prepared wetsuit or not.

Praying for you AND watching you IRONMAN live style.

Can't wait to hear all about it! Ironman must be a totally different experience with your children dancing around naked!
