    The meet starts at 6pm and there are currently 76 people entered in the 1650 with some like me probably doing paper entries. Despite what you saying probably being exactly right I am glad I made this choice and will be swimming early vs making up a time and swimming at 9pm or 10pm.

    I am doing the 1000 on Sunday but I am tempted to get a 1000 split in my 1650 just in case I have second thoughts on Sunday; last event with a slightly smaller field but not by much.

    I am am looking forward to this weekend. This will be my first masters 1650 and I entered on NT. I have not done that in a long time. I could have made up a time but was afraid I would be swimming at 9pm so went with NT. The only downside is I will likely not have anyone to race.

    Did the accupuncture assist recovery on your shoulder? I would guess recovery is the primary result from it. Is it expensive?

    That latest email from NEM listing the upcoming meets suddenly makes little ole' Vermont look like a swimming powerhouse! Which, of course, it is.

    I like the car too. I just wish purchasing a car in general was a more pleasurable process. It's such a crappy process and I always feel like I am getting taken advantage of. It's a beating too. I did my research and played the game and got a good price but it wasted a day of my life I will never get back.

    Not sure. Last year, I did backstroke in that one too.

    Not sure why, but the photo of the start is not up-loading. Maybe I'll try to upload it tomorrow.

    Yep, ESPN was great and the resolution much better than cbs. I was rooting for Lee and Tran. It looked like a slight hesitation in her second to last stroke cost Tran the title. Her UWs were awe inspiring.

    The CBS site isn't working again this am ...

    I couldn't watch last night either. Swimswam says the link for tonight's races is here: http://espn.go.com/watchespn/index#s...AA%20swimming/. And it seems to work, though racing hasn't started yet. It says 8 pm.

    The variety divers, who often watch my workouts, commented that this workout was "really intense."
    There were some USAT "kids" (20-somethings) who were doing their stretch cord warmups while I was swimming. On a rare break between sets, one of them said (along with other things), "You're not like the other lap swimmers here." I took it as a compliment.

    Looking forward to watching the womens 100 back tonight; going to be a close race between the SDK experts. A little disappointing that Bootsma only qualified 15th.
    I just hope my live stream cooperates. I was trying to watch the women's 500 and 200 IM last night, both of which sounded like great races, but the live stream links I had just kept crapping out. I am hoping it works better tonight. Looking at the swimswam comments, apparently, I'm not the only one experiencing problems. It is shameful to not have top-notch streaming with excellent commentating for this meet.

    Enjoy the trip!
    You see to have more than made up for it with all the SF and Bay area pools you've gotten to--I was looking over your list for some ideas and was very impressed!
