My 800 free time from Zones had remained in the top ten until this morning when I was bumped to #11 by Trip Strauss.  The guys ahead of me are all very fine swimmers, and I swam a great race, but it is still a disappointment.  When I began swimming Masters in 2003, I had three goals: qualifying for Nationals, winning a medal at short course Nationals, and being ranked in the top ten for my age group.  So far I have achieved two out of three.   

Swam at Nitro this morning with David, Tom, Anthony, Patrick, and Steve.  James coached.
