Weymouth

Weymouth is a quaint, old town on the sea where I will race in Sunday's Challenge Weymouth. I love how old the buildings are. All of these photos were taken on the run course.


The really huge, old boat is my favorite.
Coffee #1 makes a fantastic flat white. And Welsh Cakes!


Alan is the Challenge Weymouth race director. He took me out for a swim yesterday and promised the water was warm and I didn't need a wetsuit for our short 30 minute jaunt. My advice: If you're from California the water is (not!) warm for 5 minutes (but it is bearable), then it's freezing and you will spend the next hour shivering! Alan is also used to cold water - he's attempted the English Channel crossing (open water swim rules won't allow use of a wetsuit!) and made it within four miles of France. He's attempting it again next summer. I think this is awesome. I will be cheering Alan from the warmth of my hooded sweatshirt on dry land!

It would be super cool if all the photos from the run course were taken by you during the race. That would be totally bad ass!
