We have been swimming in our pool this week and we are loving it!! Darby Kate is having so much fun, Jorgia is getting more and more use to it, and I am totally loving our Fastlane. If you have ever heard of an endless pool, the fastlane is just like it, but you can install it in a regular pool. It's a great way to train for open water swims, too -- which definitely comes in handy for me.
Which leads me to my next little tidbit. This past weekend I participated in the Four States Triathlon in Texarkana. It was a fun race -- I had actually done this same race in 2000 (I can't believe it's been 10 years!!). Coak (my swim coach) came down and stayed with us Saturday night, and he and I rode over there together. Trev was in charge of getting himself AND the two girls over there. While I was setting up in the transition area, I took a minute to call Trevor to see how things were going. No answer. Before the race was about to begin, I searched the beach area for Trev and the girls and didn't see them. I was a little nervous, but I figured he was busy, busy getting them to the lake. After I got out of the water -- there they were! They made it!! DK was still in her "bones" jammies -- so, I knew he must have been pushing it to get them there. The next time I saw them, DK was dressed and even had two butterfly barrettes in her hair. Way to go DADDY!! It made all the difference in the world to have them there for support. The postrace party was good, too. Yummy food, fun music -- we had a good time!!
