It was so nice to be back in the South! I graduate in May, 2012, and then we'll be back where we belong. Everything is beautiful down there, and the weather is perfect.

As you know, Jenn and I have really started to enjoy the swimming part of our training. That pool at Andrews is just such a blessing because it's close and it's FREE! We went to the pool tonight after a 4.5 mile run, but they were closed. They are transitionign between Spring and Summer semesters, so the schedule is a little jacked up. We're going to go tomorrow morning at 6:30am to make up for tonight.. Every time we've gone, it's been a lot of fun. The distance is slowly increasing.
On the biking front, I've been cranking out some solid rides. Jenn and I have gone a couple times, and it is sure nice to ride with her. She's pretty awesome!
Two weeks ago, I did two 20-mile rides and one 30-miler. Then last week, I did a 35-miler and a 23-miler before we left for the South. After the 35 miles, I did a quick brick run and ran a 5k. I did 7:51's, and the legs felt really great. They took about a half mile to get going, but it ended up being a great workout.
I'm now in my summer semester, so I've got less class, but more work. I should really be able to focus on training more. Hold me accountable to it, and don't let me slack off!
Thanks for reading, and I'll try to be better about posting...
