November 8th, played back my voice messages after my noon workout. My doctor called with my PSA test results, a 5.2, over the 4.0 recognized as threshold for possible prostate cancer. Given my family history, this news came as no surprise, but it was very inconvenient. I was doing so well in swim training, the best I have felt in 3 years. Why now? I’d been swimming good enough to have a good chance at breaking the 200 yards free ILMSC record for 50+ men next spring. At age 53 I figured it would be my last chance at this record I had been so close to for two years.
