The Hair, The Woman, The Mission

Hahahahahahahaha! These are for Keith and Shannon: Note the funkified colour and the incredibly aerodynamic cut -- if my helmet blows off my head, my hair will do the rest!! LOL!! Now I just have to get my NEW tri suit and I'll be set for Osoyoos! :) :) :)





By the way -- I tried swimming with ear plugs during my lake swim today -- WOW!!! What a difference! I can't believe I've been swimming in lakes without them -- no disorientation -- no cold inner ear. Amazing. Now I just have to perfect the technique of swimming with them so they don't fall out. I swam back and forth across the lake (it took me about 4 minutes to cross) and I would have to push them in again and pull down both swim caps each time. I'm thinking a good old swath of duct tape across each ear just might do the trick. LOL! But I AM serious! I'll update the duct tape + ear plug trick after my lake swim on Friday!!! :) :):)

I have been using earplugs since my second year of racing...I get sea-sick without em.

love the do - i use to have my hair cut up in the back like that and i loved it.......a note about the ear plugs... i wear one that were molded to my own personal ears :) they cost about 40 bucks a pair and make me damn near deaf but they keep the ater out and they stay in until i twist them out. If you want to check it out, you need to contact an ENT (Ear Nose Throat) doc to hook you up as they typically have someone in the office who makes them. They look like putty ...

Huh. The things you learn reading other people's blogs. Ear plugs. For swimming. Whodathunkit?

Love the photos, thanks!

so you don't look like a dork out there with duct tape to your head...nice new do by the way...go to the drug store and buy the silicon ear plugs. they are about $5. you take one, roll it into a wee ball between your fingers, stick it in your ear and press until there is a seal.

i can't swim without mine!! and these are within the ear (not the ear canal) so your cap will cover them and not get hung up.

I second the silicon ear plugs. But I've never thought of using them while swimming! We'll have to test this weekend! Imagine us shouting at each other!

Love the new 'do!
