Does anyone swim regularly at Wilson? I usually go in the evenings between 6:30 and 9 and could use someone to train with.

Well, Michael Phelps has been spotted swimming there...

Haha don't think I could keep up with him. I hope they give him his own lane, cause that place was packed last night.

Ed, I have no idea if you are joking or not....but I'm not. I saw him there today, hanging out in one of the fast lanes. Shaggy long hair and the Fu Manchu mustache gave him away, not to mention that he was FLYING from end to end without moving his arms. I witnessed all of this from the water walking lane where I was aquajogging. He had a partner swimming with him - a no cap, no goggle, hair-totally-dry doggie paddler. She didn't know him - and would not leave the lane despite the fact that her sister, who was in my lane, was imploring her to stop being a speed bump.

This is my second random Michael Phelps sighting. Previously it was 3 am in the Caersar's Palace casino in Vegas. The water-based one was far more impressive.

So you've been hanging out, Kelsey, with the notorious Mr. Phelps in late-night "smoke filled" rooms? That does not sound like a "performance enhancer". Better skip the random sampling after the next race. :)

Not surprisingly he was chilling in the lounge next to the Pussycat Dolls area. His previous trip to Vegas was when the infamous palming-the-butt-of-the-stripper photo was taken. Perhaps he was sizing up his next conquest. I wasn't attached to a pole above a gambling table so I think I was safe.

Hi, I have no idea if you are still looking but I am actually getting back into swimming, and am DEFINITELY needing another person to meet. I am a teacher and now am free so I could meet in the mornings or any other night but Wednedays, probably for an hr, I'd really like to have someone to meet on a regular basis, would get me there. Feel free to email me, ErskineSRE@yahoo.com, i check that more.
