Swim Meet Part XVII

Yesterday was a - yes, you guessed it - another swim meet. This one was in Vallejo, at the home pool of Natalie Coughlin. Vallejo is a little sketch, but I do like their pool. The two kids swam seven events between them (four for the girl, three for the boy) and they both recorded best times in all events. I guess that's as good as you can ask for.

My favorite part of the day though, came in the girl's last event, the 50 breast. The Little Boy has actually turned into a very good breaststroker and he surpassed her time last week, very much to her chagrin. Breast stroke is her weakness but she came CHARGING out of the gate and it was clear that there was only one thing on her mind. It was pretty funny; she wasn't racing against anyone but her brother. In the end, she missed his mark by 1.5 seconds, but in the process beat her previous best time by two seconds, and just missed qualifying for junior olympics by a second.
