Men In Speedos...

Hanging with Pablo and Giovanni (the best chef in Kona)

It is that time of year again... all the speedo sportin' men are back in town! This morning lane 1 was filled with them. It kept practice humorous getting my bum kicked by a bunch of speedy speedos! The lane was lead by 14 year old Logan Borowski (he is my swimming hero). Just to give you a hint of his speed... he lead even TJ Tollakson, then when it came time for some fast stuff he did breast stroke & still took charge, my fly had to go behind him, so did my back, and breast... yep, while swimming fly I was drafting a breast stroker... but he swims 33's in the 50 and under 1:10 while goofing at practice (breast stroke). After one of the 100's I told him, "Great job Logan! 1:09". He said, "actually Bree it was a 1:04, I left 10 seconds back". I almost drowned.

Then there was TJ Tollakson in his speedo, followed by Darrin in his speedo, followed by me in a Splish (dying), followed by Pablo in his speedo. We had a ton of rest but it was ALL fast, the guys were racing or something and I hung on for the ride. Nothing like men in speedos!

Then I wanted to snap a photo of the pro gals... but the "Corbinator" kept on swimming! We were all dried and showered and chatting, still waiting, I think she is training for Ultraman. Definetly on a mission and looking ready for battle. Then Jo Lawn, on her mission, jumped out of practice, strapped on her HR monitor and was ready for workout #2... darn those women are ready to rock n' roll, and too fast for a camera!!

As for the speedo news of the day... only 9 days till the Tighty Whitey Run! Get your speedo or undies ready! Here are some photos from last year...

I could MAYBE swim a 1:04 breaststroke for...50 yds! MAYBE!! That's some crazy fast stuff. I'm sure you weren't just hanging on but mixing it right up in there! Awesome Bree!

Oh she's mixin' it up alright!!

Me gusta tu speedos! ¿Puedo entrenar con usted? Usted es una mala chica. Pero usted me hacen reír frente a mi trasero.

Buena suerte en Texas. Por favor, me surf cuando regrese.

Maybe I'll buy me one Speedo to wear when I go swimming next in Kona. Hope I won't look too ugly in it. As long as it helps me go fast, what it looks like won't matter.

Wow I must've just missed you--I got in the water just as TJ was finishing up and Cameron Brown was doing a pull set.

Serious question, can you recommend a place where I can get a hair cut? Thanks.

hmmm...I'm torn between going to the Kona pool to check out the guys in their speedos or staying away so I'm not even more depressed about the state of my swimming. Do they have a time when only slow swimmers are allowed to swim?

Blogger D said...

Maggs should just take me with her to the pool... she'll feel oh so much better!

If I wasn't such a chunky monkey I'd totally do the panties (ya that's right, I said panties :P) run. Damn me and my love of cake!

I don't think you covered this yet... where to get a good tattoo? I think that may be on my list of things to do over there :)

That sounds crazy! All the kids you've been talking about lately... what will the olympics look like in 8 years?? Wow!!

I think there is a part of me that hopes to make it to Kona someday JUST to participate in that underwear run!! It looks like so much fun!!

I *heart* the underpants run! And it's even better now that I know the story behind it. I want to run that more than I want to race the ironman!

Anyway, I'm glad that the men in speedos that you're swimming with have good enough bodies to deserve them. Some guys... well... make me want to swim without goggles!

Um.. couple of things.. So what day is the tighty whity run again and um.. what do I wear. I own NO white underware.. seriously, not one pair. Will this run freak my mom out, will she have to cover her eyes at all the skin. What do do.. what to do. Do I have to run the whole thing.. Ok.. too many questions! Sorry! I'm mystified by this part!

Sounds like you are having much needed fun and training awesome too....Keep it up! I'm sure you will have a great time kicking butt in Austin!

Tell DB, he needs to work on his espanol ;-)

MORE SPEEDO PHOTOS!!! Please, I meant to say please first, I was just getting excited.

There is nothing better than a fit guy in a Speedo! I was a swimming growing up so I was surrpunded by them. Now that I swim at the Y, I get the old men in Speedos. It is just not the same.

Seeing triathletes or anyone for that metter in tighty whities must be hilarious - especially with the tan lines!

My husband started triathlon while stationed in Germany. Everybody wore speedos!
Is this like the best time of year to live in Kona or what!!

Nice job hangin' with the guys.

Instead of speedo season here, we have leaves changing color and cold mornings. I'm so jealous.
