I learned the best way to get over a slump is to go and do a great workout. So after all my whining, I had some extra coffee and a Snickers and headed down to the Shores. I got there around 5:30 and got rock-star parking. Since the Aquathlon didn't start until 6:30, I figured I could get in some extra swim time.
I swam for about 20 minutes before getting out and chatting with friends. It was so nice to see people! The club is really like a big family. I glanced over and saw a cute, petite woman that looked really familiar. It dawned on me that it was legend, Kate Major. I got all twitterpated but finally drummed up the courage to go over and introduce myself as we were walking over to the start. She was very nice.
After the race, we noshed on really good food the Club always provides, and I chatted with friends. I saw other San Diego tri bloggers, James and Paul, which was really cool. Finally got to talk to James at a standstill, as opposed to when he's blasting by in a race. That was a first. We all watched the sunset. It was very nice.
