Nope, this is not my ride.

This is not a picture of me. :)

    I agree with you about the need for reading to develop critical thinking skills. Unfortunately, there appears to be a large segment of society that doesn't want people to have critical thinking skills.....

    Thanks for helping me put things in perspective. I felt a NEED to do that swim this past weekend, rather than "just seeing how it felt" and then deciding what to do. And while my hyper-analytical and obsessive-compulsive personality can be really annoying, it has its benefits: I dissect, probe, analyze, and obsess over everything!

    The primary purpose of the beach ball is visibility. I like the idea of the ring. I'll try to find a fairly large and obnoxiously bright one. Part of the problem I had is always battling the leash - it goes wherever the ball goes, and it's going to be in my way for at least part of the swim. (There's always something to complain about!)

    There's a local group that does open water swims in the Columbia, and they require the visibility device. Once I'm comfortable swimming in the river, I'd like to join them - even though it means skipping a bike ride home from work.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. It occurred to me as I was limping to the finish that I'm pretty lucky: I have yet to have a DNF. I know it will happen some day - I'm not sure the woman with the mechanical problem finished - and I hope I handle it with grace!

    I sure wish SparkPeople had an ice pack emoticon. I could really use one, but I have a cat on my lap.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I do worry about over-doing it. I try to listen to my body, but it's always a battle trying to figure out if I'm truly tired and need a break or if I'm just being lazy.

    I've lived with year-round allergies for decades, so I tend to ignore them and accept tiredness, headaches, and not being able to breathe as "normal." I hate medicating for every symptom, but I need to remind myself that I should take advantage of living in the 21st Century: better living through chemistry!
