    thanks Patrick. I hung out with Kurt Dickson and Steve Unruh in the ready room before our swims. Kurt swam great and looked good the whole way.

    Any idea what Steve Unruh went? They don't have any results posted yet on the Worlds website.
    i know Steve really well and we hung out together before the race. He was doing great but hit the physical wall at 600 and ended up going about 9:09. He was upset with his time. As you know he is in a hellacious age group and that placed him 4th. Calimasini won in 8:44.

    Woohoo! That is awesome, especially for a race coming so late in your regular day. You should be stoked for your other events.

    mark, I just got back from the competition pool and there were quite a few people there and if it anything to go by you can definitely swim and get a good warmup in. It's obviously hard to know what is going to happen tomorrow but a 50 meter warm up pool plus diving pool warmup is pretty awesome and suspect it will be fine. I don't know the hours for the JFK pool. Hopefully I will see you tomorrow or Monday. Fingers crossed the weather does not mess with any of your travel plans coming I to Montreal.

    On the upside, switching to SCY is good during taper because it's less arduous.
    to be honest it's one of the most exciting parts of this competition. I have a great team and some terrific friends and that's going to make this meet very special. The other part is the extended families we all have here. With 10 swimmers we will have about 40 in our party.

    This is week was lots of ups and downs but it will all be worth it. I swam LCM this morning and it felt good. I am looking forward to the meet.

    Thanks guys. I managed to finish a bunch of loose ends yesterday so fingers crossed work is ticking along while I am gone. At least for next week. The following week I will no doubt be visiting museums and art galleries with my wife(her interests) so I may have something come up that I must take care of
