I had a excellent workout this morning with a club 250 miles away. In the locker room, people were talking about summer nationals. One guy who was in my lane and seemed around my age talked about being in great shape for short course Nationals 2009 and mentioned his time in a distance event. Funny, it was the same time I did in that event at that meet.
I didn't say anything, thanked everyone for the workout and camaraderie and left.
Getting home tonight, I looked up the results for that meet. Yep. A guy from that club, in my age group was in that event, the 1000. We finished .6 apart.
