The power of Chocolate

Last night after the polar bear swim, I picked up Cathi at the Salt Lake frontrunner station and we went to my company's party.  They had some delicious shrimp cocktail, but the thing I loved most was all the different dark chocolates.  I had like two plates of different kinds.  My favorite were the organic truffles.  They weren't sweet, but so delicious.  I felt justified eating all those chocolates because 5 minutes in sub 4° water equals around 2000 calories.  Yeah right!

Anyway this morning's swim was fantastic.  I was powering through it the whole time.  Had tons of energy and was going at a decent pace.  Thank you dark chocolate!
