Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

Boulder Pools Go to the Dogs

When I went for my swim workout this morning, Scott Carpenter Pool was closed for the season. Although still the middle of August, the pool is only open to dogs.

I love dogs as much as anybody, but closing the only 50-meter pool in town to humans after just an 11-week season in an athlete-friendly city like Boulder is a slap in the face to swimmers. With the coincident annual maintenance shutdown at North Boulder Recreation Center and scheduled closures for at least one private pool, swimmers` options are severely limited.

I headed to Spruce Pool for my workout. There were 6-8 swimmers in each Boulder Aquatic Masters lane, and two in each lap lane. Jane Scott, BAM head coach, told me BAM has negotiated additional lanes from the city for this practice time for safety reasons, as the pool was over capacity.
