Now I realize that a lit up pool, while cool looking and all, isn't cause for celebration, but here's what is. The LCM pool at the Little Rock Racquet Club was built in 1975-76. In its 44 years of existence, never, not once, have the pool lights been turned on. Ever. I swim with guys who's dads and their dads founded and built the club. They say the lights were never on. Ever. I believe them. Until this morning, the only light for the pool was provided by the three floodlights (one left of the frame, one in the middle of the picture, and the one to the right).

Meanwhile, this afternoon, I am warming up and Trip wanders on deck and says "I am doing an 800." I had no idea he literally meant he was doing just one 800. That's it. Well after my "not-so-recovery" recovery practice yesterday, and after doing that FL this morning, I took a page out of Trip's book and also did a REAL recovery today...but not a "Trip Recovery."
