    I watched the 50 back you swam, it was awesome!

    Just curious, do you peak forward prior to the fr turn or do you rely solely on the bottom mark?

    thanks Leslie. You don't know how big of an inspiration you have been and will continue to be. I really appreciate your support and friendship.

    Good of luck at Canadian Nationals.

    Hey, thanks for the photo. Next time we should get a relay team suit. I think we have 4 mfrs represented there!
    Thanks Mark. i was happy with the 2free. I wish I had that extra gear I keep telling myself I have. I guess it's a very good reason to train harder for next time.

    Yes I never noticed that but that's funny. Our team sponsor Speedo won't be happy with us! maybe at worlds we can get some more sponsorship.

    You had some awesome swims at the meet. Your sprint free was on all weekend. Even with the toe injury you were fast!

    Great race to watch. You seemed really steady and just couldn't come up with the final kick like Unruh and Dickson did. Steve Unruh's swim would have made Mark Schubert proud.

    Great meet overall. Pretty tough to have 100% great swims!
    thanks Kirk. Despite the swimming ups and downs it was a lot of fun. Hopefully we will get to race in Oregon.

    hopefully we can train together when I am in Phoenix in a couple of weeks. If not I will likely see you in Oregon. Great swim yesterday Siphiwe . I put that one down to a serious senior moment. Congrats on the 2 back. Great time.

    LOL! We'll see, Stewart. A lot of those OW events are in cold water and I just don't have the stones for that. LOL! But yes, I would like to do a nationals one day. Let's look at it later. Good luck and have a great time!

    Thanks guys. I feel good for a change and I am really looking forward to having fun!

    KK we need to get you to nationals or worlds or both next year. Worlds have a short OW event and you would kill it. They are also in a great old European city.

    Seriously, let's talk about you doing one of these. You are too good to not swim at these meets. Your also a lot of fun to hang with

    That's a terrific summation Mr Dickson. My sentiments exactly.

    See you guys tomorrow or friday(fort)

    Todd is a turd...does that crap constantly. I'm sure the girls and the 80 year olds are impressed that he can win his heat by 25 yards. I'm pretty sure they teach the art at Phoenix Swim Club. I personally hope you kick his arse but it's going to be tough. But perhaps he didn't time his testosterone cycle right. Bon chance!
