One of my friends likes to say that if you take a 70 year old runner and a 70 year old swimmer, the runner will look 90 and the swimmer will look 50. I’m routinely shocked at how old some of the people I swim against are because they look years younger than they are. Something about swimming just seems to keep you young. Well some scientist types, who happen to be swimmers themselves, are studying other masters swimmers to see how their lifetime commitment to swimming is affecting their aging.

Right now I have the opposite problem, everyone thinks I’m about 10 years older than I really am… hopefully through the magic of swimming I’ll at least be able to catch up to even in looks and age :)
Today was relay day at the Natatorium, there’s 2 more days of individual events coming. You can keep track of the results here as they happen.
