Pretty good swim today.  Got out feeling pretty great.  Went to grab my towel and it was gone!  Not cool!  Frown  Had to shower and air dry.  Who does that?

Been in the same boat - luckily I had a sweatshirt that I wore to the gym that was then used as my towel.

I can "understand" goggles and maybe even trunks (not that I would do it) but a towel?  Really how do you expect the person to dry off?????

I forgot my towel once.  I was pissed for a minute, then realized I don't towel off during a race, so I just jumped on my bike and rode home. 

Must have been one of those big, fluffy towels--I don't think anyone would steal my scratchy old towel.

Yeah, I've forgotten it once as well. The lifeguards keep the lost and found towels laundered for just such an occasion

So did my old gym.  A lifesaver on more than on occasion when I forgot to bring one.

My current gym has towel service.  Check in, they ask you how many towels you want, and you're ready.  Nothing to forget, nothing to take home. 

Towel service is the only way to go.  Really.

Hey, this is important stuff.  Laughing

I get spoiled with free towels at LTF.  I had to go to a 24 hour fitness a few months back and they didn't have free towels there.  I had to go buy a stupid $10 towel the size of a wash rag so i could take a shower.  lol

I had my towel and flip flops stolen at the pool also.  Now I use a beat up towel with some stains and a beat up pink flip flops so far so good.

We have a sketchy rec center near my work.  One day I was swimming there & using a stack of pennies to count laps.  One lap they were there, and by the time I got back to the wall, they were gone.  Seriously - 12 pennies.

Thanks for this.  I clicked on the subject and was startled to find no immediate reference to H2G2.

I keep my towel in my locker that has a lock on it while I swim, go to my locker get my stuff for shower and towel then take a shower.

I had a bra stolen while I was in the shower once...now that was weird.

I know. I couldn't believe no one else took advantage. It was just tee'd right up there. Sad, really.
