    Griff. . . Thank you for your service and sacrifice. There is none higher than you gave.
    But I dread doing your WOD tonight.

    500m row
    10 pushups
    25 air squats
    Then 500M row just for fun. Around 16 minutes.

    How did I do? It’s only a matter of time before Speedo and Finis sign me to huge merchandise deals!
    I think NBC pulled their coverage of the olympics to cover my heats! In my pre race interview rehearsal at home in front of my mirror while I was shaving I put Phelps and Lezak on notice I was coming after them! “Any distance, anytime I screamed at my lathered face image in the mirror!” Caught up in the moment and forgetting that I cannot swim the back, breast or fly, I added: “Any stroke too!” I think that is when I cut my chin with the razor.
    Anyways: I got up on the blocks in my snorkel and flippers and nooodle like I usually do but the starter said I had to take them off. I said: “You are kidding me right? I always race in my flippers and snorkel and noodle at my club pool” He said: “No take them off or step off the blocks.” I said: “But I’ll drown without them and I paid good money to enter these heats and I am swimming them” So they huddled up then changed my venue and I swam all my heats in the wading pool!
    It was total domination. I out touched Phelps in the 100 and beat Lezak to the wall in the relay. Then I out flexed Torres in a back muscles pose down.
    All in another successful meet!
    That is my recollection of it anyway.
    Seriously: The results are not online yet so I don’t know how far down I finished. But I swam faster than last year so maybe I finished higher. Thanks for asking.

    Running backwards was interesting. Kips are looking good Max, Sarge, and Jason.
    Billy – thanks for slowing Silverback down for me so I could catch up, appreciate the help
