Big Shoulders Top Ten

Big Shoulders 2012 
Top Ten Moments


  1. Getting to watch the sunrise.  Oh yes, getting up at 4:00 AM was no fun, but seeing the sun come up over those Chicago waves: awesome.
  2. My first cup of hot chocolate for the fall. (while watching said sunrise)
  3. Meeting Herman: an adorable older gentleman from Indiana wearing a funny white hat, bright turquoise crocs, and carrying a kite to fly while waiting for his heat.
  4. Seeing a father and his little girls cheer on their mommy as she got ready to enter the water!
  5. Warm water on a brisk and windy morning.  Oh those waves made things interesting!
  6. Watching my dad's heat take off right before mine.  :)
  7. The finish line: oh what a wonderful sight!  Time of 1:04:20.  Finished 16th in my division (gender/age group). Just happy that I didn't finish last in my heat!
  8. Hugs from my momma and grandpa when I finished.  Something about hugging your mom after you finish something that was such a stretch, whelp.
  9. Seeing my dad finish!
  10. A celebratory Bulldogs burger before heading home with Toy Story like clouds against a bright blue sky.

And with that, I leave you.  It's nap time.
