All checked in.  Nervous about the race.  Afraid I won't be able to keep pace.


Emma on the beach

After checking in, we took Emma to the beach.  Here is is lounging after a bit of ball chasing.  This is actually the beach that is used for the start of the Beach2Battleship full iron distance swim.

I was in Manteo for work this week. I ran from downtown Mateo towards the airport and back. Nice shake out run before the half marathon on Sunday.

I took this picture of the Marshes Light in Manteo right after my run this morning.

Out of town for work.  I looked at http://www.swimmersguide.com/pool directory and found out that one of the hotels offered a day pass to their indoor pool.  This was much much closer than the local YMCA.  A coworker cautioned me to look at the pool since the hotel -- The Elizabethan -- was "old school."  I went to the hotel and there was no one at the front desk.  I took it upon myself to wander through the premises to locate the pool.  The hallways were dingy and the carpet was years beyond needing replacement.  The pool, however, looked ok.  I went back to the front desk and got their attention.  I confirmed the pool hours and asked if the pool opens at 6 am and the lobby opens at 7 am, how can I get in?  They gave me a cell phone number to call.

On Thursday morning, I was there just before 6.  I went to the lobby door, cell phone in hand, and the same person that I spoke with on Wednesday saw me and let me in.  The pool was fine and I got my workout in.  I was the only person there -- me and a Spanish speaking woman who appeared to be a combo receptionist/cleaning person.  There was also a small workout room and I could see that people were in there but I didn't peak in to check out the equipment.

Swimmers Guide indicated that the pool used benzine and not chlorine.  I do think it was something other than what my regular pool uses since I had a headache most of the morning but when I am traveling, I am often somewhat dehydrated so who knows.

Below is a crappy cell phone photo of the pool -- four lanes -- 25m?  (they said junior olympic size).  The pool is located on the second floor.

Goggle issues during the last set. I should have known better than to mess with them but my right eye was having a hard time opening. The problem is that in adjusting them I caused a leak.
