Hi everybody! I had another away meet today at Le Moyne College, near Syracuse, N.Y. The pool was, I’m telling you, small! Only one pool with six lanes that shares with only one 1-meter diving board! The meet was set up, interestingly, where the swimmers swam a few events, then the meet was paused for the divers to compete in five dives, then the swimmers swam again, then the meet was paused again for the divers to compete in six more dives, and finally the swimmers swam the last few events. During the “pauses” at the meet, the swimmers sat on the bleachers and watched the divers. So, I stood there on the board, with everybody staring at me! I haven’t had that feeling in two years! What a weird feeling. However, I did very well and scored a nationals qualifying score! I’m truly looking forward to this January. Even though I will be home for only 10 days after finals, I’m leaving for the Florida training trip with the team on Dec 27 through January 4 (yep, we’re taking the bus) and that will be fun! Maybe I will return to Rochester with tan lines!
The end of the semester is near, and all we can do is just keep swimming (“Finding Nemo”) and there will be success in the end. 🙂
