Killer Weekend

Thursday: TCSD Aquathon

Second one ever, first one this season. What the hell, right?

Swim: All I am gonna say is that this was the first time I have swam since 7/20. It was funny, during the first 100m or so, I was like "Man, this is easy, I can't believe that I haven't lost any swim fitness". Yeah right. The next 900m or so were just plain awful. I went completely off course at least twice, and in general, it just hurt. I got out of the water, got to my transition area, and I was just dizzy. I am not saying I was dizzy to make a joke, but seriously, I almost fell over 4 times ... for each leg I had to take out of my wetsuit. My vision was just not straight. When I looked at my towel afterwards, it looked like there was a wrestling match that just took my place. I put on my Vibram's, and then it was off on to the run:


the run was fun - I definitely pushed it, and it definitely hurt.

Chow time:Post race grub: Leucadia Pizza and Salad


The BEST cookie/muffin things I HAVE EVER HAD!! these things went fast! I think they were called aussie bites

Post Race, I met up with my boy's Kenny and Bassam from NYC who were in town this weekend for street scene. Bassam is good friends with the manager at Ra where they had $1 PBR's (!!!!), and they were having a sick 80's party.

Friday: Grant and Bello rolled into town from OC/LA, followed by Beach Volleyball all day, then Street Scene Volume #1

Bassam and I had "Kids" by Mgmt stuck in our heads all day, so it was only fitting of what song was on when we first walked in:

The crew (minus Greg):


Saturday: Beach Volleyball all day, followed by Street Scene Volume #2

The crew (+1 unknown):


Sunday: Regroup, pack, and get on a plane for Open World in San Fran. I flew Virgin America for the first time, and I have to say that it is BY FAR, the coolest airline ever. They have this little media center computer thingy for each person (and its free), where you can listen to music (good music at that!), watch music videos, watch news, sports - pretty much everything. This allowed me to see the video for one of my fav songs: Pork and Beans by Weezer. This video is hi-lar-i-ous! Dig it!
