Postscript


Race results from yesterday still aren't posted - I will do some pondering once they are up (I am prepared to find out that I was one of the slowest finishers - really I have no idea!). But in the meantime I thought I would just post a picture of the contents of what was truly by far the best goody bag I have ever received after a race - it is true, the registration fees are high, but this is above and beyond!

(The most charming inclusion is a key chain with a miniature fin/flipper on it! And the most immediately useful is a one-wash load envelope of Sport-Wash which I am about to use on the disgusting pile of wet gear on the bathroom floor...)

Bonus link (PDF alert): an 1878 piece from the NYT archive on a girls' swimming school in Central Park shows that "one need neither be old, strong, or masculine to be an expert swimmer."

Wow - they really gave away some cool stuff.

Congratulations on terrific time and finish of your swim. The swag was well earned.

P.S. Was Kramer there?

I have always thought it was "schwag" of "shwag" not "swag." Am I delusional?
