You are welcome to swim at Nitro (5:30 - 6:45 am) in Cedar Park, about a 20 minute drive north from downtown Austin. I won't be there on Tuesday, but I can let them know you will be there if you are interested. You might or might not have to share a lane.

i've always considered myself more of a dropout than a drop-in..... wonder if they'd see it that way?

Dave -- get yourself to UT and swim with Ande in the morning with the most fabulous Whitney (hopefully for you) on deck. You'll get a great workout.

Wimp. Too bad they don't allow drop-ins at UT, you'd fit right in.

You sure about that? I have and I believe others have.

Nitro will be great, though, as well based upon what I've heard. I haven't swum with them.

Better for you though would be to hop the fence and just do laps in Barton Springs.

barton springs is nice, but i always scrape my knuckles at the shallow end.

deep eddy is a gem. nice and cool... certainly going for a dip there one of these days.
