That’s a sneaky kickboard there.
Over 15 years since my last swim practice. I quit yesterday after 4600 yards. Wondered how I made it through 10,000 yd practices as a kid?!? Exhausted yesterday. Sore today 😂. Can we get weekday rain and weekend sun so I can stop suffering through indoor workouts? I miss hiking! pic.twitter.com/nNQcJyomnK

4,600 yards after a 15-year break is extremely good, IMO.
Also, when you have afternoon off, then back on, then maybe off, but then actually off pic.twitter.com/XHzLPxK8Zc

TTT lives for swimmers finding an extremely specific yet highly relatable moment with the perfect GIF to illustrate it.
Someday @A_Ipsen & I will meet at a small pub in Saarbrücken, we won’t say anything to each other, we will just exchange briefcases filled with our tell alls.

Hit us up with these when the time comes.
I was surprised to see @katieledecky sitting behind me, but not as surprised as she was to find a giant cutout of her face next to her. #gostanford pic.twitter.com/LeZ4YX0oh3

Does Stanford just bring cutouts of all its Olympians to intimidate other teams? If so, seems legit.
7 years ago today, they were relay teammates… #BSS #Olympians #LivingTheDream pic.twitter.com/0RiP9XOoCi
