A swimming video?

Yurtie, the wonderful Australian guy who volunteered to coach me this year, who btw is going to do a 15-freaking-kilometer swim soon (yep, all at once!) asked me to send him a video.

Of me swimming.

In my swimsuit, presumably.

"One length from the side, one from behind and one from in front. The behind and in front only need to be for about half a length."

Do you actually mean moving pictures OF MY BUTT IN THE WATER? DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, MAN!?!?

Gack. I am not going to like this. I think I would rather put out my eyes with a rusty coathanger than see my actual rear end swimming along on video.

I can tell him right now that it's not going to look anything like this.

HA! As much as the video will help, I'm on the same page as you. No one videos me in my swimming suit..

Nancy is saying many swear words as she read this....

Nancy! You do NOT resemble that gentleman in the photo!!!!! And as your training progresses, I suspect you will approach nearer and nearer to becoming one of those mermaids in the schwimmverein link.

In my peanut of a runner's brain, I run like Catherine Ndereba.

See the mermaid, be the mermaid.

Just be sure to make him sign a disclamer. I bet Pam and Paris wish they had ones before they were taped! ;)
