Today, some masters swimmers celebrated the life of Diane Alford who passed away in May 2009 at age 39. A number of us agreed to do 4,000 yards today as she would have turned 40 this week. Every year, Diane enjoyed swimming with a fellow masters swimmer on his birthday and doing as many 100s as he was in years. This year, we decided to do such a swim for her birthday. Wish she could have been here to see all of us do the swim. She would have been proud.

Did the Diane Alford Memorial Swim with fellow masters swimmers up on the mountain this evening. Earlier in the day, I did weights as follows:

Squats: bar x 20

Bench press: bar x 5, 70 x 10, 80 x 8, 95 x 6

Lat hi row: 100 x 10, 120 x 8, 140 x 6

Military press: 40 x 10, 45 x 8, 50 x 6

Bicycle crunches: 1 set of 100

Good morning darlings: 1 set of 50
