A NEW STUDY SHOWS…THAT I’M A ROCK STAR!!! 

Hehe, seriously though, I’m a rock star because…

#1, I SWAM THIS MORNING!! Yep, yep…aren’t ya proud of me? Swim #2 in the books…CHECK!! I’m telling ya, I’m breaking records people, I’m breaking records! Let’s be real, who has ever swam 2 days IN A ROW?! Michael Phelps? Uh NO, Phelps puts the P in PLEEEASE!! Haha, I’m only kidding, I don’t think Guinness World Records will be knocking down my door anytime soon, BUT HEY, it’s the small accomplishments in life, right?

TRUE STORY: I’ve met Michael Phelps before aaaand… more than once? YES! Cool? YES! I can still picture our meeting SO VIVIDLY in my head, like it was only yesterday…haha, I’m seriously kidding, well, about the whole “like it was only yesterday” dramatics, but I do remember meeting him at NBAC (North Baltimore Aquatic Club) during our annual Christmas dual meet! You see, his team dualed our team to a fun, friendly swim meet each and every year aaaand… DID I LOOK FORWARD TO IT? OF COURSE! WAS IT BECAUSE OF MICHAEL PHELPS? NOPE! You see, I met him (for the first time) when he was 11 (and I was 11) aaaand we all know he didn’t receive “Olympic Golden Boy” status until 15. BUT WAIT, back to our meeting…I think he said something to me like, “GOOD SWIM” OR “NICE SWIM”…SWOON, it was totally epic; although, I’m sure it means more to me NOW then it did to the 11, 12, and 13 year old Kristin! Awe, little, cute Middle School Kristin…hmm, I wonder what happened?

      Thanks! It’s funny because when I first met him, I remember thinking of him like “Wow, he’s that really awesome/fast swimmer” so I guess I was pretty accurate because a few years later, Michael Phelps turned into MICHAEL PHELPS!! 🙂

      Haha, thank you Angie, I’m so glad you asked about the racing part!! Hehe!! I actually decided to head to the pool earlier than 7 am and actually it was a better time to go because they had all of the lanes opened up SO I decided to go faaaar away from anyone else (it’s an aquatic center so there are lots of lanes), towards the end of the pool and actually I was pleasantly surprised that only 1 person tried to race me!! I ignored him though! 😉

    I think you are a rock star! Good job on the swimming and running in the same day. Seriously, many wouldn’t do that! Very physical day for you. I think it’s cool that you met Phelps. Even if it was when you guys were 11. 🙂

    Awesome story…but at the same time? I’m basking in my new rock star status because I kick butt and take names doing what I do at the office and if I have to? Can provide a survey that says just that!

    Thanks, Kristin, for posting this, as it elicited a smile I wasn’t expecting AND made me want to go swim, which, actually, is not the best idea, because I haven’t opened the pool, yet, but yes!!!!! So much good stuff here!

      Thanks!! Your legs feel a little bit like jello!! Ugh, I do a couple run-swim-runs each summer and wow, the second run (after the swim) is tough!! Especially since the swim is in the ocean with high waves!

    Yay!!! You should go around telling people “Without me, it’s just aweso.” Haha, I actually had a shirt once that said that. BTW, not to name drop or anything, but a couple years ago I interviewed that tall swimmer (2nd from left) for a video I made about when he and some other Olympians came to town to surprise some swim students.

      Awe, that’s SO cool!! All of those guys are super awesome and crazy fast!! What a great interview! 🙂
      Haha, I love the aweso shirt idea!! I could totally rock it!!

    I love this post! You rock. Congrats on the great workouts and if you ever find yourself back in Baltimore you better tell me!

    I don’t know Michael Phelps but he went to my high school (younger than me) and I graduated with his sister. So I’m not quite as much of a rockstar, but a rockstar slightly removed haha. 🙂

      Oh, I will DEFINITELY tell you if I’m in Baltimore again!! I find myself in Baltimore every now and then so I’ll give you a heads up! I love it! I’m a writer so I sometimes go to the Baltimore Book Festival and sit at my companies booth.
      Haha, and that’s very cool that you graduated with his sister!! You’re still a rockstar because you’re so sweet and cool and awesome! I’m not a rockstar, just a girl that has met a rockstar when she was younger!! But it’s cool to remember! 🙂 Thanks for your sweetness and have a great day!!
