I smell bad.

I give myself my Happy medal, since I finished uninjured. (Although I didn't start uninjured. I twisted my foot at yesterday's practice swim. It hurt all night and this morning, but by the time I started, it felt fine. Too bad, cuz I would totally have blamed my time on a bum foot!) And I did beat my NJ run by a bit.
Today was hard. I don't know why I was slower on the bike, because I had more people around me than in NJ. Dunno. The swim was good, but I really have slowed down. If wetsuits actually do give you a 5-minute advantage...then...yikes! (It was hot out today, but it was hot in New Jersey, too.)
At the finish, AS USUAL, the masseuses weren't taking any more people because they had "been there since 9 a.m." Same thing happened at NJ. I hate to gripe (ha) but seriously, people who have been on the course for 4 straight hours could use some caring!
I came home to my bedroom ceiling dripping, pretty much right over my bed. Nice. I had to go right upstairs to talk to the tenants but no one answered the door. Left message with the deadbeat millionaire landlord, and called the condo's emergency number. I could have used a better homecoming!
It was fun having Nancy Toby to hang out with. Once we hit the water I didn't see her again, so I'm thinking she did well.
I'll have more to share later. After my ceiling crashes. Sigh.
