  1. Chilly night

    by , 02-01-2010 at 10:36 PM
    I know it's only February, but I'm tired of the cold already. Saturday when it started snowing unexpectedly, I set out to walk to the store in my lovely warm quilted DKNY coat that I bought last winter. I realized within a block that my lovely warm quilted DKNY coat is a size large and that therefore it was funneling all the cold air right up to my armpits. I've lost 30 pounds since I bought the darn thing, and it was no longer able to do its job. I hopped on the next bus, went to the North Face ...

  2. gaining step

    by , 01-27-2010 at 10:21 PM
    Yesterday I made it to the gym. I don't want to do the weight machines only once a week, but that's better than nothing.

    I came in early tonight and drilled with Michelle, working on strips of false counterattack/real counterattack.

    We had a bunch of people, and I fenced Meng, Bridget (who actually fenced me properly!), Michelle, the two kids from the Christian Academy, Tim (two or three times), Meng, Tony, and Charlotte. Thank heavens, Tony and Charlotte stopped being ...

  3. Vet Combined Mixed Sabre - New facility

    by , 01-24-2010 at 02:09 PM
    Agota Balot's new facility in Tinton Falls, NJ, was inaugurated by the veteran event today. The place was very nice--open and spacious, with a lounge area and cheesegrater strips with a nice modular wood floor between. My husband drove up with me, and he staked out a big comfortable armchair and read his novel on his netbook the whole time.

    We had 12 people, two pools. My pool had Synnove Reilly, Mary Malecki, George Drukarov, Bob Lombardi, and Albert Benzimra. I lost to Lombardi ...

  4. mixed open

    by , 01-23-2010 at 08:14 PM
    We had a good turnout for the FAP open mixed sabre--31 competitors. This though we had a good 36 preregistrations and some people on the waiting list.

    My plan was to work on staying upright and not getting too concerned about the outcome. We had two flights, pools of 5 and one of 6, and I was second flight so I refereed the pool that was before mine--Ahren had hired Jessi1 and Alex to referee, but Jessi1 was also fencing. I had three teenage boys (Quinton, Frye, and Jason Cai) ...

  5. hanging step

    by , 01-20-2010 at 10:10 PM
    Yesterday, I went with my husband to the health club. He does a very quick routine, and if I did my full two sets of 15 reps on everything he would have had to sit and wait for me for quite a while, so I just did one set. One is better than none.

    Even though I was having back problems for a few days, fencing doesn't seem to bother it at all, and the weight training I've been doing seems to be paying off in smoother fencing and a lighter hand. Duh.

    Michelle and I did ...
