One Hundred 100's on a Sunday in January

One Hundred 100's, One Hundred 100's... it rolls so easily off the tongue but not so easily off those aching shoulders. The only two who managed the feat this January on Sunday, January 25, 2015 were Tim and Paul (pictured below). Though I suspect their shoulders weren't all that achy as they were back in the pool Monday morning for a more normal 4,000 yard workout. Congratulations to both Tim and Paul who may be doing a repeat sooner then expected as Sal was not available and he is the guy who started this whole One Hundred 100's at the Huntington YMCA.

Several other swimmers kept Tim and Paul company for part of their journey including Pat and Rich above and myself (Mike) and Rich in the photo below.

Even Nancy showed up, (see photo below), as well as John who did do the One Hundred 100's in 2014. What a difference a year makes!
