Okay, the whole "Wahhh...I'm not racing" is totally gone. Guess where I am going this weekend? CATALINA!!!!

Guess what the weather is supposed to be like?

74 degrees.

Oh my, oh goodie my. Now this is going to be a vacation!

I'm so excited to be part of the experience and to watch my fantastically awesome coach and teamates race thier little hearts out. They are ready, now it's time for the party!

So, check this out, I get to go here!! Isn't is just awesome looking, almost like Hawaii or something. catalinaislandwest1.jpg

We get to take a ferry over to the island and we get to chill in this quiant little bungalo of a town. Isn't is gorgous? 800px-avalon-catalina-island.jpg

And look here too. My view is going to be of that fantastic bay, ooohhh, ahhhh. Say it with me...oooh, ahhh. Yea, you wish I was packing you to come with me. catalina-avalonscenic1.jpg

So, I'm all packed and ready to go and get this, what am I taking? A BIKINI! Yea, a BIKINI, and no lap swimming suit. Nope, no swimming in a pool for me, just beach cruisin' in (let's hear it again) A BIKINI. Also in the backpack is A SUNDRESS! Like one that has tiny straps and shows my knees (Thanks Hill). Also packed are short sleeve shirts and oohhh, get this CHACOS!

Yea Baby, I'm going to an island!

Okay, so since I'm not racing and I don't need to worry about things like Hammer Gel, fanny packs, HEED, life savers, etc, check out the bag I am taking. backpack.jpg

Can you believe it, I fit my BIKINI, SUNDRESS, CHACOS, and sun tan lotion in that tiny bag? Who knew?

As you can tell, I'm excited to go and really excited to root for my training partners, chill with my excellent husband, and remember the island that used to be my childhood playground.

Have an excellent weekend, I will try to enjoy it for all of you!!
