Just keep swimming

I was inspired by an article in the most recent issue of the Fitness magazine I get each month to start training for a half marathon (13.1 miles).  The one small problem was that I didn't know of any half marathons in the area. That has been solved.  I talked to a friend today (who might go run it with me!), and she told me about the Pittsburgh Marathon/Half-Marathon on Sunday May 3rd.  I'm all about it!! My goal will be to finish the half-marathon.  No time limits yet, just making it to the finish line. 

Oh, and in case you weren't aware of it, yesterday was the 200th birthday of both Darwin and Lincoln, so Happy Birthday!

Yesterday Scott and I tried our hand (well, feet) at salsa dancing!  It was sooo much fun!  For all of you in the area, there are FREE salsa lessons in the White Building at 6:15(ish) on Mondays. 

I was a bit nervous when we got there because for the first 10 minutes everyone does warm-ups together - and they were certainly over both of our heads.  Then, we broke up into beginner, intermediate and advanced groups, each with their own lessons.  The two teachers (Malcolm and Barbara) for the beginner group were fantastic! We switched partners every few steps, which helped keep anyone from getting too frustrated and kept it fun.

I'm totally hooked, and I think Scott had a pretty good time too, so we'll definitely be heading out next Monday!
