Currently I'm training for a triathlon. Now before you think I'm some super fit chick, let me explain. This is a small indoor triathlon. It's the kind of race that makes real triathletes roll their eyes.
Last night I went swimming. Nothing new with me going swimming; but last night was my first night to swim with my swim cap. I purposely planned to go swim later so no one could check out how awesome I would look in my swim cap, which sadly this picture isn't my swim cap. But seriously, how awesome would this swim cap be? Anyway, I get to the pool and quickly scanned the pool area to see what lucky soul would witness my first swim cap swim. I spotted some High School kids sitting in the corner. I wasn't really worried about them because they're HS kids, and whatever I do is going to be dorky to them. Despite the HS crowd I put the swim cap over my ponytail, and began my swim. The first lap went great. I felt like Michael Phelps.
After a couple laps and starting to feel ok about the awesome swim cap, Sister #2 walked into the pool area. She came to laugh at me. After she got a good laugh at me, Sister #1 walked into the pool area. Yes, both sisters came to laugh at me in my awesome swim cap. I hate my sisters! Ok not really. Sister #2 was actually very helpful. She sat on the edge of the pool and helped me with my flip turn around thing. I never got the flip, but she kept trying to help. Well, in between laughs. Sister #1 was no help at all. She basically floated and dog paddled in the lane next to me.
The moral of this post...never tell your sisters you are going swimming while wearing your new swim cap.
