searching for Swimsuits

Rl has got me shopping around for a bathing suit.  Yeah, I know I'm a little behind seeing as it's July 4 today.  And I'm not even looking for a cute one.  I've made a couple of long term goals recently that I hope to accomplish in the next couple of years.  One of them is to complete a triathlon.  *laughs*  Yeah, right!  I don't even believe it myself! Actually, it's not that impossible.  I'll do short races.  I've already started a running and biking program. It's slow going but I'm on my way.  And how can I resist all the fun I have, annoying everyone around me by talking about my running mileage and how sore my quads are!

...But I've been avoiding the pool like the plague.  I think, though, if I get a really amazing suit (the kind that will able me to swim faster and longer without drowning) then I could potentially reach my goal in 2012. There's no way I could do one this summer but I'm helping out with several races in July and August.  Inspiration helps but I also get intimidated by people who have 9% body fat.  Don't you?

So if you haven't done your beachwear SL shopping yet (in a roundabout way, I always try to connect these rambling posts back to SL), I encourage you to check out Has Been's great selection of swimsuits inspired by the 1940s, 50s, 60s, 70s and yes even the 1980s!!  I love Has Been and have a ton more stuff to blog from there.  But that's for another day.

The fireworks were awesome tonight.  The night sky was so beautiful and so clear that I felt like I could just reach out and touch the moon.  Happy Fourth to all the US'ers!!
