>Blast From the Past

>I was looking for something tonight and I came across some old pictures. I realized that maybe I’ve been preparing to be a triathlete all along….

Swim meet for the Evergreen Dolphins, sometime in the late 90’s. You can see by the clench of my fists that swimming has always made me absurdly nervous and fearful. And yes, those are some sweet perscription goggles I’m rocking. Apparently this was before I was allowed to have contacts.
I don’t think there’s too much to explain about this one other than it is obvious I have always had amazing style. And yes, I think that’s a mullet (albeit a baby mullet)
Somehow I bet even then I wasn’t really concerned with speed.
….And then have ice cream 🙂
I realize I look like a baby boy. But I wasn’t. See, that’s Minnie Mouse on my shirt. Girls wear Minnie.
