How I beat Michael Phelps

Weekend swims:  Sat Aug 13 1PM, Sun Aug 14th 1PM

Last Swims:
Thu Aug 11th 6PM
Water:  69 clear and gently rolling
Crew:  Gumdrop, Itch, Patriarch

Fri Aug 12th 6AM
Water:  66 clear and calm
Crew:  Capt'n, Crash, Diablo, Milk Man, Showgirl, Itch, Patriarch

I dove in with Phelps to my left and Spitz to my right.  Game on!  They valiantly tried to hang with me but I dropped then.  Then Evans and Ledecky took a shot at me but to no avail.  I am just too good.

Wait a minute!  Evans looks a lot like Crash and Ledecky like Showgirl.  And I am not passing them, they are passing me.  OK so I guess the reality is that this is Whitefish Bay not Rio and I'm as slow as a tortoise.  Yes I know turtles swim tortoises don't.  But then compared to Phelps and Spitz and Evans and Ledecky I'm not much of a swimmer either.  But I bet I enjoy it as much or more than they do.

And even though I had to turn in my gold medal (doping), it was a good swim.

More evidence of the benefits of lots of swimming, especially in cold water.
