So here’s where I’ll be June 14, 2009:
Maybe I’m a bit too excited about being chosen as one of the lucky 700 to shell out more than $250 to drag my carcass 4.4 miles across the Chesapeake Bay, but I’m a glutton for punishment, I guess. I was chosen in the first round of the lottery and signed up within an hour of getting the e-mail.
I stole the above picture from my Nerdy Fashionista cousin’s blog, who decided, with absolutely no prodding, wheedling, whining, or batting of eyelashes on my part whatsoever, to train for not only the One Mile Challenge held the same day as the 4.4 mile GCBS, but to do the 2 mile race at the Jim McDonnell open water swim in Lake Audubon the month before. She blames me for making her do it, but it’s not my fault, I swear. I blame this guy:
Stay tuned for my struggles as I try to whip my sorry ass into endurance swimming shape, while maintaining my stellar (ha!) level of BJJ performance.
Just thinking about it is making me tired. I think I need a nap.
