  1. Ironman epee at BCAF ~ My Longest Day So Far.

    2 rounds of pools and repecharge make for a lot of bouts. My first experience with that format, and it was a blast. I really enjoyed the oppertunity to fence so many different people.
    Round 1 pools. A whole bunch of meh. Went 1 and 5. Only 1 zero though. Kid named Suh, who may have been the fastest epeeist in the club. My distance was OK, but I was less than patient, which threw my timing off.
    Round 2 of pools was better. 3 and 3. I got to fence Drew R, always a fun bout. In competition ...

  4. Placing myself on the IR

    So my ankle has been bothering me for sometime. Not enough to stop me from running or fencing but enough to let me know that I need to rest it at some point. Well that point became mandatory this morning. It hurts like the dickens. At fencing last night it was hurting but I as usual ignored it because I was fencing. Got up this morning and bam more tender than I want, walking is not an issue but other activities are out the door for now. Thankfully I am going on a scheduled vacation for a week so ...
