Coincidentally, when I got to the pool this morning, the instructor from that strength training class was the lifeguard. I imagine she was filling in, but in all my visits to the pool since I joined, she's never been the guard before. And then my friend Brittney, through whom I found out about the class, also showed up for her first Wednesday swim in a long time. So, both people in my orbit from that class showed up on the day I started getting serious about training in the pool so I can return to it. Neat! I told the instructor about it on the way to the locker room.
We made a friend on the very cold day we spent hanging around the Brixton Market during our trip to London last year. I was shocked to learn via Facebook that he died today at age 35! I don't know any of his other friends so I've just been looking at the various posts they've been tagging him in to see what I can learn. Poor guy.
Jonny was very sweet and made friends easily, and I can tell already that a lot of people have so many wonderful memories with him.
I'm spending the afternoon today at the Korean spa for a much-needed scrub and massage and picking up dinner on the way home from a restaurant I've been dying to try.
