Three Thing Thursday

I swam! I actually swam! The pool and locker rooms at my rec center are now back open! They have had all but the workout room closed since September and that would be the last time that I actually swam. September...in fact it may actually have been at the 70.3 in August I would have to look. Let’s just say it was a little rough and I only did 650 yards and I can already feel it in my arms and shoulders. But on the plus side I didn’t drown!

I am finally getting my Secret Santa gift mailed out. Jill set up the Blogger Secret Santa gift exchange and what a chore it must have been, Thanks Jill! I wish I had been a little more creative in my gift but I’m just not....creative these days that is. I hope that it is enjoyed anyway. And I’m happy to have found a new blog to follow! Have you all gotten your Secret Santa gifts mailed/received?

You may remember that a few months back I volunteered to be a personal motivator for the Kick Start program that was sponsered by Skirt Sports. I enjoyed the experience very much and while I don't talk with my runner as often as I was we are still in contact, we ran the Turkey Trot together, and plan to do more in the future. Today they sent out a video that was made at the event. Some of the racers/motivators talking about what it meant to them as well as Isabel giviing us a last pep talk. You can see Rebecca and I crossing the finish line at the end.

Congrats on the swimming! I bought my secret santa gift online and shipped from there...I did it last week before the WORLD got away from me :)

I just got my Secret Santa gift mailed today too. It is a fun way to discover new blogs.

So happy to hear you didn't drown today swimming :). I have not been as consistent swimming as I was a couple months ago...heck, I'm not running consistently either, nor weight training. Hum. That doesn't sound too good. Ha. Good for you though, getting started early for that tri season of yours :).

YAY for blog gifts! I am super behind on blogs (why much schools schedule so much stuff at then end of the year? Two band concerts and two choir concerts this week, and it's only Thursday).

I'm thrilled to hear you still keep in touch with your buddy from the Skirt Chaser, you guys look adorable crossing :).

Great job on the swim! I really need to get back to that but not real high priority for me right now.

I just got my blogger gift mailed as well.

Have a great weekend!

Good job on the blogger gift exchange--I'm way behind--but at least I know what I want to get now....I just have to go buy it.

Congrats on swimming. I haven't been swimming in a long long time!
