My Team
I swim on a small team (Madison Titans) with 4 regulars and a couple others that can't make the morning workout. On Saturdays and occasional weekdays, I drop by HSA in Huntsville for a swim in the big pool.

  1. 10.31.12 - Wednesday workout

    by , October 31st, 2012 at 05:29 PM (Pete's swim blog)
    Swam w/ Dave, Dave and Danny. Yesterday, my son called me out to the front yard in the late afternoon because something cool was happening in the sky. Turns out he was right... there were rainbows everywhere. The sky was mostly clear but hazy enough to refract light all over the place. My cell phone camera unfortunately doesn't do justice to what this really looked like but here are some photos I caught:

    Rainbows, rainbows, rainbows and more rainbows.

    Never seen anything like it.

    This morning, I made up the workout. I'm always worried someone won't like it but I was the only one speaking up.
