I'm a cheater

I feel really awful about it. Sometimes you just have to do what comes from the heart. It started on the weekend when I tip toed into Lake Erie. Then I took the plunge and when all the way. My wetsuit kept me really warm and I fell for the open water. No boundaries, no flip turns, just open water. Then I did it again a few hours later. I feel so dirty. It may be the sand in my hair.



Once I cheated on the pool I felt ashamed to go back. This morning I met another pool. It was closer to where I was working and I thought I already cheated..why not try something new? I have not been to masters swim for a couple of weeks now. I have visited late and swam after 7:30 but no masters. I am really trying to make it there but I have to say that not getting up @ 4:30am is really nice. I figure that if I go after work and try to fit in as much open water stuff as I can that I will be able to hit the water more often. As much as I like the Masters swim, I also like my sleep. I will have to keep to a training schedule and map out my workouts ahead of time.



Masters has taught me alot and you can't beat the structured workouts.I've met alot of great ppl there and hope one day to go back. But now that summerish is upon us I just can't go to bed at 9:00 anymore I need to stay up and let the night feel my song.





This is a fire we were at a few days ago on Hanna and McDougal in Windsor. Was a pretty awesome fire.

Hey would you and some fire fighter guys be willing to man an aid station at our race in Tecumseh on the July 27th.

Hi Jeff,
Sounds like you're doing a great job with your training. Hoping to come out and watch you do the Belle River tri this weekend. Good luck.

It is a song lyric

When The Night Feels My Song
Artist(Band):Bedouin Soundclash

I'm on the rocky road,
Heading down off the mountain slope,
And as my steps echo (echo) louder than before

Another day is done,
Say good-bye to the setting sun,
See what I found, turn back to the ground just like before

And hey hey hey, hey hey hey (hey!)
Hey Beautiful day (hey! hey!)
Hey Beautiful day
Hey, hey hey hey
Hey Beautiful day (hey! hey!)
Hey Beautiful day

When the night feels my song,
I'll be home, I'll be home

Into the undergrowth,
Twist and turn on a lonely road
In the twilight the day turns to night and I'm alone

And when the light has left,
I'm not sure of my every step
I'll Follow the wind that pushes me west back to my bed

And hey hey hey, hey hey hey (hey!)
Hey Beautiful day (hey! hey!)
Hey Beautiful day.
Hey, hey hey hey (hey!)
Hey Beautiful day (hey! hey!)
Hey Beautiful day.

When the night feels my song,
I'll be home, I'll be home
(x 3)
