50 m pools kill me in the 200 fly !!!! Turns are my friends !!
And, of course, it gives those of us with deformed legs a chance to catch up with those of you that are not so blessed!
I was also impressed by the post athletic activities: a gala banquet, sponsored trips to the Blue Lagoon, whale watching and most impressively - a post meet talent show that highlighted the creativity and humor of my fellow athletes.
I'm already committed to Mission Viejo but can highly recommend IGLA if you want to experience a more robust and thought provoking side of our great sport.

I need to withdrawl my offer to count laps for the distance swimmers. I did not realize swimming would start at 8:00 am. I was planning on working half day then driving down to the pool in the afternoon. Therefore I will be available to count laps for anyone in the afternoon. Probably after 1:30 or 2:00 pm depending on traffic.
Well, I'll be a slow one who is seeded early, so I'm sure I will be dry by then! Hmmm, but, then again, there will be older/slower ones than me. I have NO idea what time I will be swimming! So, IF Fresnoid isn't available to count for me and IF I haven't already swum my heat, then I have dibs on ya, Bill!
I thought it would be fun to come over for a day of it to see everything and have fun racing as well, but it's not going to happen. I'll be earning booku bucks in overtime anyway this summer, and don't want to miss the opportunity for more of it. I already have two LCM meets right here in Wenatchee that I can swim in anyway.

Some times the cost is a switch to be flipped & overtime is hard to pass up !! Will you be rewarded with placing where you think you might end up ?

I got ice today at the Safeway just before getting back on on 24.
MJ Have fun at nats. I think you need to try some swims in 50 M. It really changes the way you go out with only 1/2 the turns & a LONG way till the next wall !!!!
Thanks Orca! I did a 50m meet a couple weeks ago . 200 Back was my first event, not as bad as I thought. The problem was the limited amount of swimmers so I finished my 200 back, immediately walked to the other end of the pool to get on the blocks for 50 Free...Ouch. I'm glad Nationals will be more spread out, so I can rest!
Although I won't be there I wish all the participants well.Having over 1400 swimmers at an LCM Nats is a sign of health for USMS.
