I'm A Triathlete ! Again....

Today was the Danskin Triathlon. Last year was my first time doing it and again this year I was a gluten for punishment. I even shaved off 18 minutes from last years results. Yeah! I am absolutely afraid of the open water swim. I can swim but I am not a swimmer. We had to swim 603 meters. I am always so relieved when that part is done. Then on to the 20k Bike and 5k Run/Walk. Today the weather was so bad. Normal Seattle weather except this is August and we usually have wonderful weather. It down poured the whole time. The weather man said showers, not rain!

Here we are after receiving our metals all soaked and still smiling. Myself and my DBF's two sister's Michelle and MerriAnn. Could we be smiling cause it's over.....hmmm...

It is a wonderful experience. Any women that has participated will attest to that. Nothing but women bonding and participating for a great cause.

Until next year. *sigh*

Knit on!

It's My Blogiversary!!

Well I really can't believe that it has been a whole year since I started to blog. Wow the time goes by. I am going to have a contest. Leave a comment and you could win a set of beaded stitch marker's.

On another note, I have found my Mojo again. Thank God. I was getting worried about it. But I am back to sock knitting and I also restarted the Mystery Stole again for the umpteenth time. I had started off with Jaegger Zephyr and didn't have enough of the color & couldn't get anymore. Then I was told by someone in my Stitch & Bitch group to try Skacel's Merino. That was a big mistake. The fiber is so fine and tangles and breaks very easily. So I found a LYS that had the Zephyr (in a different color) and have restarted and it's going great. I am still on the Clue 1 but it is coming along.

Well, I guess that's it for now......Like I said previously, leave me a comment for a chance to win a set of stitch marker's.

Til next time .......Knit on!
