Hello Lucky Lake! Remember me? I remember you…
This morning I woke up excited! What happened to that girl that was scared of swimming in a lake? Instead of nervous, I was full of excitement.. Okay maybe a little nervous. But nothing like my first swim at Lucky Lake. I got there just in time to say hello! This is Rachel and her fiancé Eric!
I usual ride bikes with Rachel so it was nice to have her here this morning and joining in all the excitement. Which; hats off to her it was her first swim across Lucky Lake! Welcome to team.. umm We’ll have to come up with a cool name.
Congratulations to the following swimmers! Eric, Rachel, Ben, me, Kelly, Meghann & Katy! As we embark on different races and training plans we can always come together on this day and enjoy friendship!
Knowing that I was meeting up with these great friends was enough to keep me pumped. Talk about an awesome support system. While gliding across the water this morning I could always pop my head up and know someone was near my side. Kind of like, “ Okay this isn’t so bad.” What have I been so afraid of? My mind has developed its own fear.
Todays swim involved a swim across and back, and then a second swim to the red buoy.. more like a cool down swim and laughing with friends about how awesome we are!
Lucky has an amazing house and I am thankful he lets all us crazies use his home and take over his lake early Saturday mornings. Thank you Lucky it means a lot. He also has a really cool phone booth.. That works.. Ring ring.. Anyone call for a swim across the lake?
I work on Saturdays. Boo. But I still manage to get my butt out of bed and across town for a swim, since I head straight to work after words I grabbed Dunkin! Because America Runs on Dunkin and I had a sweet coupon. I was starving so I scarfed this everything bagel with cream cheese down along side a refreshing tea! YUM.
Now I must get working on the next exciting post.. I will give you a hint..
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
