Swam w/ Dave. Ok... it was only one spider. But after a tough set of 75s and a hurried 5 seconds to get pull equipment on, the little guy hanging out on my paddle might as well have been a tarantula. After a quick panic, I splashed it off and finished my 200 pull making sure my flip turns were quick and snappy lest the spider attach itself to my foot. After the pull, the spider was nowhere to be seen. Good... let it infest someone else's equipment. After a few 25s, it came swimming back at me underwater! yikes! Somehow I managed to scoop it out of my lane with a paddle and flatten it with a pull buoy. I need a sign for my lane:

    I don't think so! Any eight legged movement in my general direction is a hostile act.
