If you are wishing to get off the list, mail to
mailto:pacmasterupdate at six.pairlist.net, then put
in the subject line. i try to keep track of everyone who wants to
get off the email list -they go on a separate list, so that next
year when people join we can keep those who want to be off the list,
off the list. Sending emails to other than pacmasterupdate will not
keep removal list current.


Because you are a US Masters Swimmer you can create your town Fitness
Log account on the US Masters Swimming web site. You can log your
daily swimming yardage and it will track your yardage through out the
year. Go to
to create your own account. It would be a good start for next year,
but starting to log your yardage in the account. (I made my goal of
swimming 250 miles during 2009. Now do I raise the bar?)

The Go the Distance has a great worksheet to log your daily yardage.
It has more distinct ways to log your yardage, that most people will
ever need.
