So, yes, not only will I be assistant coaching, but there is a huge effort right now to get more women on the team. They are hoping I can help with that as well. Im into it. I just need to be sure I have time. Tuesday is fine though, and I cant wait to start.
Meanwhile, the OHS (onehour swim) is on 1/8. Im aiming for 4000-4500 years. We're using the swim as a fundraiser for an AIDS organization in the lower east side. Im also going to sign up as a Postal swimmer ("postal" refering to several long distance events). Basically, anyone who signs up for the event swims for an hour in Jan. Laps are counted, and times (called "splits") are taken every 100 yards (4 laps). You turn in you results and get ranked in your age-group with all the other swimmers in the nation who swam. Maybe I'll be in the top half.
