Things I Never Thought I'd Say...

First would have to be "Let's do a triathlon!"

Oops, guess I can take that one off the list.

Second would be yelling at my boys regarding little boy parts in public.

But on the short list there would also be "Hey, wetsuits are on sale! I should buy one!"

Yup, I've been bitten by the "I need to train in my own wetsuit" bug. Upside: end of season sales, like 60% off. Downside: buying online means obsessing over size charts. And they ALL vary.

I've worn Orca women's XL, and unisex DeSoto 4 separates (my fav but too expensive for a newbie). The best price I've seen so far is Xterra at $170 (what I'd spend on two rentals). Or eBay. Got my eye on one there too.

But the size charts.... seriously? Yes, I have boobs. I'm also 6' and a smidge. The women's suits go to 5'11". At my height and weight, the "recommended sizes" vary from woman's medium to XL to men's medium. Depending on brand. Oy vay. :)

I'll keep you posted on what I end up with. As soon as it's here my sister and I are sneaking into Ohio St beach for a quick test swim.
