Ever since I got chastised a few years back by the Cal-Berkeley 'Pool Picture Police' for taking a picture of the Golden Bear pool, I've been sure to get in my workout first and then quickly snap a photo on my way out. Unfortunately, what that means is that my hands are often shaking from the extreme effort I always put out and I end up with blurry pictures like this one from the RF Wilkinson YMCA in Williamsburg, VA ...



What you can't see in this photo (or, let's face it, any pool photo) is that the separate lap pool was kept at a perfect 79/80 degrees. That perfect temperature, though, didn't stop me from heating up, even though my performance on my Broken Mile test wasn't so hot!

    They said I might catch people in 'compromising positions' while in their bathing suits.

    Yes. Although I wanted to say, "are you f***ing serious?"
