Back from Bawlmer, Hon!

Well I must be getting old and dorky when I take pictures like this one...


Meadowbrook pool in Baltimore, home of the North Baltimore Aquatics Club

I did not see Michael Phelps, but I did see Katie Hoff and Bob Bowman! She got in my lane just as I was getting out -- the lane was "reserved" for her so we had to move after our workout. Katie is about 5' 9" but not as big as you would expect an Olympic swimmer to be. And as I watched her swim she crossed the midline with her stroke. I was surprised after all this stroke work I have been doing the last few weeks. Bob Bowman smiled and nodded as we passed by and examined Katie's stroke, surely thinking to himself "who do these women think they are!". Oh well, you only live once. I had a great 3000 yard workout with my friend Tanya and her Masters friends and it was fun to swim in a different pool. More over it was so good to catch up with Tanya and have a weekend to play in Baltimore.

Field of Dreams... the girls were small enough to squeeze through the gate and run around the field but were too nervous to do it!

That is awesome! I totally would have taken the same picture :) Thanks for the feedback. I am going to get a bigger size for now but most likely I will have to get a maternity suit in a month or 2. I haven't gained too much yet. My current suit is shot though and I figure a size bigger will likely get used post-partum or at least as a drag suit later.

That is SO COOL!!! Did she look super fast just swimming for practice? What a cool experience. Interesting about her stroke.
The girls look adorable.

She was taking it easy and did not look too fast actually. I would have gotten an autograph but she got in the pool too fast. I guess she is always there. What dedication! But look who i am talking to..
