Water aerobics with Karen, Leslie while hubby swam laps.  Great core and arm workouts. Afterward, Leslie, a former member of the BYU women swim team, showed me how to breath without swallowing water!  :)

Just registered for the 2013 Boston Marathon! :)

Now if I can just find lodging for this Fri night in Logan! :(

I wish I had someone in Logan I could hook you up with! Sorry :(

Glad you got some good water aerobics and water breathing training in! Are you still doing swim lessons at all? I think you may learn to like it! :)

Rachel ~ I am not taking swim lessons. My 15 y.o. swim instructor is back to school and swim team practices. As a matter of fact, I've already forgotten what I learned in those handful lessons last month. I'm a slow learner and even worse knowledge/skill retainer! Hehe! :) Today I got a monthly pass to the Legacy Center so I think I'll go to the pool and practice in the shallow water.

I talked to Marci whose mother-in-law lives in Nibley so she's going to let me sleep on the couch there! :)

The swimming sounds great! You get run Boston again! Good luck finding lodging in Logan. Have fun!!!

Wow, you're running TOU!!! I actually thught I was registered for TOU and I was getting excited to run it, but my name isn't on the list. I emailed the TOU people and they verified that I am not registered. So I guess I won't be there. I probably would register if it was still $80, but it's not worth it to pay over $100.

Smooth- good luck at TOU this weekend. I'm glad you're learning how to breathe air and not water, especially since you're not a fish!
