    And too many Tonys to shake a float at.....
    We have an Old Dave and a Young Dave coaching ....

    Last summer, my Masters coach was named Dave and I also had a coach Dave that worked with the age group team that I swim with (with my kids). It got confusing when the kids and I would talk about swimming and I'd have to say 'my coach Dave' or 'your coach Dave' all the time.

    The most common name in our Masters group is Tim. We have a few Tims, but I don't think we have any other repeats.

    The age group team I swim with has some repeats. One lane that I swim in often has two Jacks. There is also another Megan, but since the coaches don't talk a lot to me, it's not confusing. The head coach mostly likes to tease the kids when they get beat by me or tease me on the breath control sets and claims I'm a 60 year old woman who smokes 2 packs a day.

    Although it is a public pool where I swim during the lap time, all the guys seemed to have traditional names: Rob/Bob/Robert (3) Thomas (2) John (2) David (1)
    The women all have "weird" names...go figure

    There are three people named "Chris" in our workout group, though none others in my lane. I think the only other repeats are Dave/David (total of three of those).

    There is another Chris Stevenson (just joined USMS I think) who swims for a different masters club in Richmond.

    nobody because i've been in rehab for my shoulder (again) and i've had to use a 20yd pool a few times. got dizzy with all the flip turns.

    starting to seriously consider another 20year retirement at this point. being injured just sucks.
