Paula Takes Second - WWU Triathalon in Bellingham

May 06, 2008

Paula places in her debut triathlon!

Sunday morning the weather was good and temps cool at the WWU Triathlon in Bellingham. There was a great turnout wit h over seventy competitors coming out to enjoy the great course. Not sure how the day would shape up, Paula starts out with a great swim only seconds behind the swimmer that started 15 seconds in front of her. She ran to the bike transition where it took her a bit longer than most to mount her bike, this being her first triathlon. As she rolled onto the course she made up time on the hilly course with her good climbing background. The transition to the run went much smoother where she slipped her shoes on and ran through the hilly course. Not know where she stood overall due to the staggered start in the pool, she only hopes to “be competitive and finish”. However as the they read off the top finishers she is surprised to hear that she took second! Just another day out for the first time triathlete. The future looks promising for this young professor.

A Love Letter To A Dog On Valentine's Day

February 14, 2017

Dear Dog,

It has come to my attention, in this month of love, that before the boyfriends, girlfriends, children, jobs and moves, there was one thing that has loved me through it all: you!

You patiently waited all day for the squeak of the door to open on the first day of my new job. You heavily nosed my significant other as to say "welcome" on our first date. You've laid with me as I cried, licked...
