Swim Lessons, Course Surveillance and Power Outages

Thursday nights should never be this "action-packed." But in the course of 2 hours, Bridget had swimming lessons, my street had a power outage (which lasted a balmy 16 hours), and the girls and I scouted out the bike and run portions of the sprint Tri course. We dined by candlelight eating a nutritious meal brought to us by the fine dining establishment of Chipotle, spent a couple hours at my in-laws house only to get the call that our power was back on, loaded everyone and everything (2 kids, 2 dogs, 2 bags of frozen foods) back into the car, headed back to our casa only to find that the Illuminating Company didn't have ALL the power restored on my street. How does that phrase go - if it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all!"

And best of all, Cleveland experience record-breaking temps this week, including Thursday! Lucky us!


  1. uggh! which tri are you guys doing? i am assuming huntington but was hoping for fairport harbor as i may try to sneak over and cheer at fairport.

  2. Huntington - it's her first sprint tri and she's a nervous wreck. She's an awesome swimmer, and bikes with me on occasion, but she hates running. How is that possible to be my daughter and hate running?!
