    I saw it on the news, but didn't think much of it. I used your post to warn my kids, as my 12 yr old tends to be friendly. This description has popped up in the past too. Wasn't that long ago (couple months?) that we were wondering "whatever happened to that man in the white van?" Ugh, I hope he wasn't successful before and is now shopping for a new kid!

    There were police cars everywhere and it was on the news. I doubt the criminal would come back to our neighborhood. But it's a reminder that bad things can happen anywhere.

    Not sure yet. I'll ping them. Either is fine for me as I turn FINA 50 next year

    I love this set! I am recovering from shoulder surgery, but will throw this in the mix when I'm training fly again. Thanks for sharing!

    I used fins on the UWs and on the swimming bits. I'll have to use fins to swim for awhile, I fear.

    I always rest. Usually, when I do the 100 pace 50s, I do them odds = 100 pace @ 1:00 or so, evens = ez @ 2:00 or so. Today, I was resting more than that on the last 3-4. 100 pace 50s are hard, especially fly.

    Yeah it seems odd that you wouldn't have more ... There were definitely a lot of very happy adult swimmers to have the extra 5 days outside with extended hours. Too bad it has to end!

    Thanks Stewart. Was a fun little meet. I love having a meet or two where I just show up to swim a couple events.

    3 ft shallow end, you can even head-butt the floor with a flip turn (I know through exp lol)
    Thanks Steve. I was very happy with the 50 free. Yeah, 3 feet can be treacherous for sure. I guess I could have tried to kick out on my side, but just didn't feel like possibly being aggravated after two good swims.

    Thanks. The record really wasn't on my radar, so I was just very happy with the time. I am thinking about that meet next year. I swam there as a kid growing up. The usual suspects could interfere: summer vacations and my relative lack of interest in long course meters.

    You're buddy Jack Groselle was at the meet.
