This past weekend was a very busy one for our little family. On Saturday was the SMU Alumni swimming meet which I decided to swim in. It was a very humbling experience. For the past week running up to the meet I got in the water, I felt good swimming, and thought I might actually be able to hang with the SMU swimmers for a few moments until my endurance ran out. This was not the case, I got my lunch fed to me the whole meet. Except for the 50 free which I won (I had an 8 second head start) I got beat and beat good. This is not to say that I didn’t have fun, because I did. It really felt good to be on the blocks and competing again, it’s really the thing that I miss most about swimming is the meets, I live for that adrenaline rush when you step on the block and take your mark.
It was fun to see some of the alums and talk with the current swimmers. I really enjoyed my day.
On Sunday Sophie had her 5 month photos taken. We were very happy with the results and cannot wait to see them. The only issue we have is having to wait two weeks to see the finished product.
