Better late than never, here are my three things for this Thursday:
1. I had my first Open Water Swim (OWS) this week! I had put it off as long as possible and so … it was time. I am so used to the 80 degree pool at Bellingham Athletic Club, that the 60 degree water of Lake Padden was a bit shocking to my system. I must make myself get in a few more times before next Saturday.
2. My favorite day at work was yesterday! It was the Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics of Washington. I run a leg or two of it every year during my work day and I am so thankful I have great bosses who let me take some time to participate in something I love. Yesterday, I ended up with just about 5.7 miles. I ran the first leg solo and then picked up my buddy and co-worker, Kyle, for the remaining miles.
3. In less than a week now, I will be in Boise, ID! Race day is Saturday, June 8th. I’m praying for nice weather.
