Pancake Pentathlon 

A few weeks ago I swam in my first meet since moving to San Diego: The Mission Valley YMCA Pancake Pentathlon. The Pancake Pentathlon is an annual event in San Diego. You swim each stroke and an IM, then add up your times. The fastest overall time wins. You can choose 50s strokes + 100IM, 100s strokes + 200IM, or 200s strokes + 400IM. Guess which one I did?

50 Fly - 28.36
50 Back - 32.30
50 Breast - 31.31
50 Free - 23.25
100 IM - 1:02.88 DQ

I was fairly happy with my times... especially the 50 free. I got DQ'd in the 100 IM for doing a backstroke flip turn (forgot about that rule!).

Here are the complete meet results.

A Free Transcription Service 

I have been using this cool new service called Jott for the past few weeks. You register your phone and configure some email addresses and then you can call a toll-free number and whatever you say will be transcribed and sent to the email address you specify. It works well and the price is right: FREE! You can also use it to post things to your blog or Twitter.
