    Thanks, PWB, for a well-stated post! You are realistic and have a great attitude! Thanks as well to Mark Usher for this:

    I feel lucky. I'm lucky because I won't have to worry about top ten times. I couldn't make top ten even if only 9 people swam my "best" event all year. LOL

    I don't worry over top tens, I would like the opportunity to participate in a live event at some point, but live remote from most meet opportunities.

    Agreed. In the overall scheme of things missing out on masters swimming competition is pretty low on the list of COVID-19 repercussions. It will definitely be great to get back, though!

    I totally agree that we need to keep perspective. I have a 41 year streak of at least one TT time per year, but it is not worth dying or infecting someone else to continue the streak. There are many more important things. Being healthy enough to swim at a meet, even if there are no meets, is a blessing. I see Sarasota Sharks may be able to have a sanctioned intrasquad meet this year. I wish them well.
