Hi Bill,
We met in AZ last May right before the 1,650 (where you like the rest of the heat trounced me, thank you very much!!!).
I'm just getting back to the Forum (I feel so Roman) and I'm so excited for the virtual swims. I always right down my yards and now there will be an extrinsic reward as well :).
Thanks for all of your hard work.

Yikes! Before Ion Beza sees this post... I "write" down my yards, not "right" them down.

Hi Karen,

I remember you!

That was a funny race. It was my first time racing with men and women in the same heat at Nationals -- and I was convinced that Melanie Dullea was going to beat me. I failed to introduce myself to Carl Saxton, who was swimming in the next lane, and I failed to realize one of my teammates was swimming in lane 8.

Anyway, you're "right" about "write"...
