Graduation Day for ME!

Okay, 2 things...

1. I have doubled the number of followers from 2 to 4! Woo-hoo! If my avid readers would spread the word and progress my plan for World Domination I will consider a giveaway!! =)

2. I have graduated. Now I know this is not a big deal in the scheme of the world but boy did it make me happy! =) I was merrily swimming along (and by merrily I mean swimming as hard as I could to leave the other guys in my bubbles) in the slowest lane of the Masters Swim Class at the "Y" (Now for the record, the class is full of triathletes (and I mean realer triathletes than me) and really fast swimmers so I had safely placed myself and my ego in the slowest lane) when the coach stopped me mid-exercise. She said, "Next week I think you should swim over here in the next lane." I said, but they are faster than me! She said, "You're in between though and you've lapped this guy twice already." I felt great and a little scared! Those people are faster than me and I don't like being lapped so this will make me push harder and faster. While that will inevitably make me a better swimmer it will also make me hurt a bit more and that scares me...what if I fail out of the 2nd slowest lane and they send me back to slowest lane-dom?

And also...I feel like the slowest lane guys will think I am putting on airs or think I'm too good for the slowest lane. Any suggestions on master's swim class lane graduation etiquette??


  1. Dude, I would totally do what we did when we were little and got called out for something.... point a finger and say "She made me do it"

  2. Oh, by the way, CONGRATS for being promoted to the next fastest swimming lane. :) You're awesome.

  3. I love your posts! Congratulations on both the followers and the graduation.
    It's always tough when one person advances and the others are left behind, but at the same time, if you are a slow lane swimmer and are faster then the other slow lane swimmers wouldn't they begin to wonder why you stay in the slow lane? Would you be showing off? Or making yourself feel better that you were faster then them? Being so good at something is always a lose/lose situation. Best of luck with that! ;P

  4. LOL!! Swim in the lane that does not give you anxiety :) Congrats on graduating..

  5. Hey I just came across your blog and wanted to let you know I have a couple giveaways going on right now if your interested. I am adding you to my google reader right now. :) Congrats on both your accomplishments.
