Best kept secrets are best kept secret!

6:30 AM at the V. Star Pool.

I know better than to mention this but most of you folks live elsewhere so.....
I'm old enough to know you don't tell people about your favorite place, be it a camping spot or a favorite restaurant.  If you do it isn't long until word has spread and your favorite spot becomes crowded.

I was reading through the forums of the Masters Swim Association last evening and someone mentioning they had to share their lane with twenty other swimmers!!  E-gad!

I had not realized how lucky I am to have the place to myself most mornings at 6:30 AM.

Please don't tell anyone!


  1. how do you resist the slides?

  2. Me and my big mouth!! This morning there were 10. Count 'em, TEN swimmers doing laps at MY TIME!! I had to share a lane, for the first time, since I started swimming at this pool last Fall!!

    Blast and drat! When will I ever learn? :-)

  3. Thanks sis.

    And Sherrie? I did go down the slide!! I was told to only go down in the sitting/laid back position. It was a ten second ride and quite a thrill. What I forgot to do was cover my nose when I shot out of the slide into the pool at the bottom of the run. I got a big slug of water up my nose very unexpectedly. Other than that!

    Whoot! Whoot!

  4. I was going to say you're safe at that hour. I doubt very much that the "crowds" will last.

    PS - doesn't your beard create drag in the water?
