Bill Shipley. 28 years old. Aries. Sporting a burley, red beard for resistance purposes.

I'm going to Tempe, which will be my second Nationals (Cleveland was the first).

I've been training with Chicago Masters, but I'm affiliated with Illinois Masters only.

Age Group: 25-29 M

I haven't registered yet, but I plan on swimming the 50 and 100 free, 50 and 100 fly, 100 IM, and possibly the 500. Hopefully, I will be doing some relays too.

Arriving Tuesday (from Puerto Rico), departing Sunday.

Staying at whatever hotel Mark Urban has.

I imagine Mark and I will be doing the taxi thing.

That is all... peace, and I'm out!
