I told her that was sweet that she thought of me. I also told her that I am looking for a twin for my 22 pounder.
Patti: Let me get this straight. You're swinging 22 pounds with one hand and 22 with the other?
Me: Yes, it's doable. It's not pretty and it doesn't feel all that great but...David tells me that Jessica wants to do a sprint triathlon but he's not feeling it. I ask him what he wants to do. On his bucket list is running a marathon in Death Valley but in the winter. Mike chimes in and says he has a list -- it's not a fitness bucket list but it rhymes with bucket and that makes me laugh out loud.
After climbing, I headed to the pool and when I got there, the noise was deafening -- the Boy Scouts have returned. I chided myself for not going home -- for frequently trying to seize the exercise moment. As I decided whether or not I should pay or go home, the Weight Watchers' woman nodded at me. I was touched by her willingness to share a lane.
And, bonus, I am a different and better swimmer when I have to share. I got in 10 quick laps -- possible the quickest I've ever done and called it a night.
