    If I get better in time I will be there for sure. And if I don't see you, enjoy the meet and good luck on the events

    Thanks Joel

    Say it ain't so Steve. Hate to hear that. Maybe... Just maybe you will feel better by Sat or Sun morning. Take care of yourself!

    'sorry to hear you had to cancel your trip to College Park. We would have been in adjacent lanes in the 100 back and while you would have smoked me, I was looking forward to meeting you. I hope your troubles are soon behind you.

    New Zealand is on my bucket list and traveling that far would definitely require extra time after the meet exploring. One of my teammates did this event when it was in Sydney a few years ago and he said it was awesome. This is definitely worth some serious consideration.

    Makes sense.

    I know an OW swim maybe you might like. It's closest thing OW, to sprinting I can think of. There's a structure about 40m from shore in a out 10 feet of clear water, and the wooden platform just happens to be very similar to a starting block. I did a few workouts there doing several AFAP blasts with easy backstroke back to the structure. If you ever stop by Aruba.

    But for the general OW swimming I've tried, it's not for me as well. After a few minutes I would be 90 degrees off target and would furthermore have to roll on my back because my shoulders are toasted.

    Just moving around recreationally with fins and snorkel is more fun

    Congratulations on your swims. I bet you felt awesome after that win.

    I hope you are able to use this as a way of boosting attendance in San Antonio. I plan on using the Worlds experinece the same way. Good luck.

    Ali only decided at the last minute to swim. She's still recovering from shoulder surgery and still in pain and is not swimming much.

    I do love that pool -- one of my favorites. I didn't sign up bc I figured I'd be too out of shape after goofing off for awhile and then being out of the water for 17 days. Plus, our beach rental started the Sat of nationals. In retrospect, I prolly could have done a couple 50s. I just didn't fancy showing up at nationals and swimming poorly.

    That was taken at an abandoned gold mine. The camera was moving around, but I grabbed it before it fell!

    It is, especially the North East side of the Island, away from resorts and civilization. You have to access by jeep or foot.

    Thanks, the ocean breeze is nonstop on the island which keeps the summer heat comfortable but it takes everything with it, like cameras
