GTD Update:
11.98 miles (= 21,083 yards, = 19,278 meters) to next milestone (500 miles milestone).
Looks like I may still get that suit after all. Not that we swim for prizes, but I'll take what I can get.

    haha, anything that helps get you to the pool can't be bad for you
    I still have 35 miles to go, so you're way ahead of me.
    One of my normal lanemates was at workout this morning, and we chatted about it. She's never done GTD before and was asking me what kinds of suits...I told her for guys it is a brief or jammer, and you can select size/color. Last I looked, she was around 480, so she'll be there in 2 weeks.
    One reason I swam today was to get closer to a guy I normally swim with who is away for the weekend and can't swim. He's really into GTD and it will annoy him if I get closer

    I love the 500 mile suit, but there's no way I'm going to make it this year. Congrats as you'll easily make that.

    With 12 miles to go, I should make it...but it really depends on my days off from work and how I can fit in a little pool time. It would be easier if I had a training facility in my backyard.
