Does anyone swim here? I will be in Denver this Thurs - Sun and was thinking of heading over there Thurs. morning. I've never swum lcm before so I thought that though it would be a somewhat expensive cab fare, it would probably be worth it. From what I can garner online it's open 5-6am and 8:30-10:30 am for lap swim.

Failing that, there's a gym with a pool 3/4 mi from the hotel, and I'm bringing tethers... but the UD poo looks nice online..

Do you live at altitude? If not, prepare to bust a lung. :-)

That pool is great, check on-line for schedules and try it if you're in town. The light rail station is across the street and might work very well for you (nice system).

It's a great pool. I swam there last summer while in town on business and loved it (http://s3-media4.ak.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/R_Y5YMJwOec-Ty2BNKtSaw/l.jpg); I had a car and it was easy to find, free parking, etc.

I cannot WAIT to be at altitude! I think it will be fun...
The light rail system sounds useful. Can anyone give me a link to that? Do you know how close it goes to the City Center mariott? I grew up on an island in Maine then moved here (to Oregon) so this whole public transport thing is TOTALLY new to me.

I really appreciate the info!
