    Yes, take where you're at. And considering you're on your way to World, that's a huge accomplishment after all the pain you were in last year.

    All is going well here. I'm really enjoying Memphis. It's a beautiful town and there's a lot to do here, especially around the arts and music. It's a city with an identity crisis - not quite a big city, though not a small one either. The people are fantastic. I'm enjoying my new team, my coach and the folks on it. There are two faster women on the team, but today I realized that they were 10 and 20 years younger than me and I'm close to them. I'll get 'em when they're not looking. The hard part is that we only practice 3x/week as opposed to 6x with my last club. It's hard getting out on my own, but need to 2 more days/week.

    Good to see you're doing well, Stewart. You're inspiring me to get my butt in the gym for some weight/strength training.

    yes sixteen thousand people. Rumor is that they will be running 4 pools. Montreal was 2 competition pools and a warmup and warmdown pool.

    I am am up and down own from day to day with how I feel but the general trend is up which is great. I feel like I am in a race against time to really be where I want to be before worlds but I will just keep plugging away and enjoy each day as best as I can. This time last year I was afraid I would not be racing ever again so I will most certainly come take where I am at.

    How is life coming out the other side of the move?

    Patrick, you did just fine and long term your PT will mean you will be back better than ever. I think I need a page out of your book after worlds to rest and recoup my shoulder but I am afraid I am too far along with the injury.
