It's going to be a very long weekend!  Oy!  This will be my last time wearing my B70.  And the last swim meet in the age group 35-39.  Starting in February I'll be 40!  But this year won't be a walk in the park for me.  Three days of swimming the 1500, 400 and 800 freestyle with the 200 backstroke and butterfly in between.  I'm getting too old for this!  Need to learn to be sprinter and just swim 50's!  I did notice one super fast human in my age group so I had to google him.  Here is what I found:

Many of you know Alex from Active.com, where he inspires and motivates you with his column about swimming. For those of you who don't know Alex, who swam on the collegiate level for Stanford, here are a few of his stellar accomplishments: a member of the US National Team for eight years, three time gold medalist in the Pan American Games, and holder of 6 Masters world records. - source

Luckily I won't be any where near him as I belive the heats are mixed by sex and by speed.  Unlike Nationals when you race against your own age.  Not that it matters as when I do swim any distance event I mostly swim it on my own without looking at other swimmers.  Well except twice.  Once I tried lapping a fellow mate in the 800 which helped push me.  Another time I was close to another mate during the first 500 of a 1500 and then felt strong enough to move ahead of him.  So yeah sometiems I look at other swimmers but not this weekend.  Don't want to see myself getting lapped.
