Pardon the long radio silence, I’ve been on a bit of a blog vacation and just enjoying life most of the last month. I’ve had a lot of time off, taken a lot of beach naps, picked up my training a bit and worked in a trip to the ridiculous awesomeness that was Jamie Patrick’s Swim Camp in NorCal. I’m tan, salty, sandy and pretty happy right now. I did take (or just end up in) a fair number of pictures so I figure I’d catch you up with the last month in photos because it sure beats hearing me recount it in song :)

turns out if you fall asleep at swim camp you'll find multiple pictures of it on facebook... photos by pretty much everybody

This coming weekend I have plans for a four hour swim at Avila Beach from 9am to 1pm on Sunday. I’m stoked, I need a long swim. The question is what will the temp be? It was only 50 on this past Sunday due to the high winds we’ve been having… that could be exciting if it stays cold!
