I was so excited to get my triathlon training revved up, but now it looks like that will be on hold for a few days. If I feel better tomorrow, I may just meet up with the group practice before heading off to DC - something I am not doing today. Still I managed to get in a run (ok, a walk), spinning, and swim workout this week. The swim was tough b/c I forgot everythign I learned last spring. I think I'll take a lesson since I'm missing the swim practices with TNT.
On the crafty front, I've been going a bit crazy making things for my niece who is due in 2 weeks. I'm now working on a baby bunting and hat for the baby to wear home from the hospital. I did, however, finish the cutest hat for Alex who will be 3 next month.
It will match her jacket perfectly. Too bad winter is almost over . . . This was the first time I attempted to do any sort of color work so I'm pleased with how it came out.

On another note, although I will miss the kickoff and the first 3 group practices, I actually signed up to race in the Philadelphia Insurance Triathlon on Sunday June 22. I will be participating in the Olympic Distance event which is a .9 mile swim (think ~70 lengths of the pool), a 25 mile bike ride (RT from my apartment to NW Ave. near Valley Green), and a 10K (6.2 miles). I can already do each one of them separately, not necessarily fast, so I will now need to work on building my endurance to do all 3 at once. Seriously, if I can walk a marathon, I can do just about anything. Ok, maybe not anything.
For now, have a great weekend!
