Near the start of this set, some guy got in next lane over and was swimming free straight (like 3000), and I was doing my 100's.  He was holding probably 1:25's so I tried staying up with him.  It was nice pacing with him, but his steady pace was a bit faster than 1:30 so he ended up lapping me.  I wanted to just cut my intervals down, but I already felt like a douchebag for racing him.  Typically its the other way around where I'm doing distance and some doofus gets in and does hundreds and tries racing.  Props to that guy for the nice distance pace.
500 kick

2500 free pull
100 back/breast


13,600 yards total in 3:34


This last week my mom's neighbor was cleaning out his garage.  He had a photograph that was blown up to poster size of Saltair in 1900.  He didn't want it and gave it to her.  She called me a couple days ago and asked me if I wanted it.  Holy Christmas Eve yeah!  I'm psyched, I feel like old Saltair is my personal Xanadu.

Wouldn't it be sweet to go back in time and see this place?  I'd give my left foot to go there.
