Red or blue last night was something!! I made my way to the polls after work and I don't think that I have ever seen so much energy from people when it comes to voting. I have always been politically charged, I love politics!!! Last night made me feel good to see so many enthusiastic people. Something I certainly hadn't seen since I voted in 2000. Last night was different...last night was good. I had planned on getting in bed early, but I stayed up and watched Obama's speech.

Besides that, I made my way to the pool last night. I could tell I was still tired for the first 200m or so, then I got into my rhythm and it felt really good. It was nice too, because I kicked out the remaining soreness from my legs on the swim. I ended up going an easy 3200 and called it a night. Once I got home, I put on the faithful Uggs. Those boots are the best feeling things I think I have ever had on my feet. My foot actually didn't give me any pain while I had them on....I have found my therapy haha! Not much else to report...still taking it easy on the injury in hopes it will work itself out :) I'm sure it always does.

Lastly, I came across this today...I have seen it many times before and every time I read it, it moves me....enjoy!

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt

Happy Wednesday All~
