I fought this book. There is really no better way to put it. It is a difficult read, but not because of its depth or complexity (which it has in spades), but because of poor execution. Bear overreached, and failed.
I took this photo of Claire venturing into Lake o' the Pines in east Texas last summer. We took a family road trip for a long weekend to Jefferson, TX so I could do the Jefferson Triathlon. We rented a house right off of Lake o' the Pines, and since there is very little to do in Jefferson, we spent lots of time at the lake.
I am finally going to back into swimming today, after a six-week break. I usually take a break from swimming sometime during the winter, but this year the timing was helped along by a shoulder injury I received at the DAM Winter Relays meet in December.
