Boca fun

Went up to Boca Reservoir near reno yesterday to meet a few of Mich's coworkers, have a little BBQ, and play in the water. (Someone had just got a new Jet-ski.) Probably could have picked a better day - although it was sunny, it was REALLY windy, even for Nevada. Here's Julien on the Jet-ski, with Brian hanging on -

And some impressive moves by Joe:

And Jake:

The water was less cold than I'd imagined, so I did a little swimming - and I do mean LITTLE, maybe 150 yards worth. Today, my legs have cramps where I didn't even know there were muscles. Apparently I don't have ANY swimming muscles at all. Long way to go for my Ironman career.

Julien spent a lot of time in the water, and was pretty cold when he got out. Here he is hunkering down trying to get out of the wind...

Hey, hey, good job for swimming! Advise for cramps? Um, rub 'em and stretch 'em just like you do for running? You're absolutely right about swimming using a completely different set of muscles- when I started running I could barely run half a lap even though I could swim for a half hour straight. Keep practicing, and maybe I'll do that Ironman with you someday! Ha ha! :)
