    I had been looking there but was looking at the formal links by year and did not see 2013 so never went further. Thanks for the help.

    That is crazy! Congrats! I would definitely have thought you would have made it in long course over short course. For me, I think it helped that I switched my training to Mason for a month or two before Zones and did a lot of long course AFAP 50s in practice. Training short course for long course just doesn't cut it for me.

    I'll tell her.

    Well, it is definitely a career first in that event for this short course specialist swimmer.

    That's all I'll be doing this summer!

    This is weird. FINA rankings for 2013 are out. I'm #1 in 50 free long course meters and #4 in 50 free short course meters ... I really had a crap SCM meet in December. That should never be the case.

    Do you have plans to get in before Nationals? Hard to fake long course, even if you are a young stud.

    I like my turns. The 50 free long course seems to go on forever. I think I need more upper body strength/endurance for long course.

    I will definitely try if I am not gone on that exact weekend. It's somewhat possible that Teen Fort will be there too, and I wouldn't want to miss her either. Or Mollie!

    I thought you loved SCY? No Zones appearance?

    I can't believe how excited I'm getting! I will always pick travel over LCM.

    Thanks so much for the info. I will definitely have some time to get in some swims amongst my luxuriating in Paris culture.
