Getting ready for the New Year...

Spent time today applying for my Visa for Australia. World Championships are in Perth in April and even though it is 'iffy' right now with work, I want the ability to go.

Plan 'B' is of course the Tampa Bay Marathon Swim on the 19th of April. Now it is only plan 'B' due to the fact that when you weigh Australia and Tampa.... Sorry Ron, Perth wins...
But Tampa is much more a reality right now....

Also spent time this weekend loading up my Flickr account, I have had it for awhile but never used it. Did you know that you can put pictures on a World map as well as link it to this blog? That is pretty cool and my pictures are somewhat organized by race and year. In twenty years, I'm sure it will have been worth the OCD effort! But personally, it was probably a by-product of boredom.

They will work on my ankle tomorrow which puts me back to day one, but with a better outcome I hope. I may not swim Alcatraz on the first because of the boat ride, not the swim. I will help out and then go for a swim after the race....

I have put in for my Master's card and signed up for WC's swim camp for adult-juvenile delinquents. I, of course am not one of them....

I'm just waiting for my CS&PF, BLDSA and ILDSA forms for 2008. I have my pounds and euros ready. I also have to finish my Santa Barbara and Catalina paperwork... Who knew that being this 'touched' took so much paperwork....
