    Depending on how they organize the relay heats, (ages mixed seeded by time, or heats per age group) our 200FRR, 400FRR and 200 Medly relays could be swimming against each other; looking forward to it!

    This will be my first SCM meet. I'm really hoping the learning curve isn't like it was for me with LCM ...

    Check out my split on my first 100M free race in a LCM pool. (my name is Jesse Trowbridge)

    Yeah, Whoops...

    Goodluck on your swims... I'll be yelling for your 100IM! Taking down your own record must be a great feeling!

    thank you ahelee,
    we'll see, there's what we hope for, then there's how things actually go

    Hey Q,
    hope I don't have the slowest split.
    we'll see

    Hey Jesse,
    hope you swim fast

    looks like you got real tired in that LCM race
    8 Trowbridge, Jesse M M24 UCI
    26.85 31.89 58.74
    ease up a bit on your first 50 so you can crank your 2nd 50
    5 sec diff is way too much

    Great planning, as Ahelee notes. You've inspired me to do this as well.

    How many SDKs on the 50 fly?

    See you tomorrow Ande -

    some of the relays will be fun and very fast... I think the only age group overlap will be the 200 Free relay - we will actually have 2 very fast relays going in different age groups (100+ / 160+).
