This is basically why I won’t be doing the HITS triathlon tomorrow. I can’t risk getting hit in the face with my temporary fake teeth still healing. And, also, I feel pretty shit and I can’t really run more then 5-6 miles.

Yay. #HappyDay100 or whatever.

Belvedere Lagoon

The lagoon is a different color because of something the Belvedere people put in it. I think.

This is where I swam today. The Belvedere Lagoon. I had heard rumors, talk, whispers of such a place. But, you have to know someone who lives on the lagoon to let you use their dock off the back of their house. I don’t know lots of people in Tiburon/Belvedere (shockingly). Today I got an invite. The lagoon is fed from the Bay, but it’s cleaner and treated by some chemical for algae and it’s like 10-12 degrees warmer than the Bay — no wetsuit needed — and you can do long 45′ laps around it. If you can, wrangle an invite from someone.
