  1. This is written REALLY well! Train harder, want it more and keep smiling and the results you want will of course come in time 🙂

  2. My daughter swims and I read obscure blogs to gleam info and insight to share with her. I have seen her race tons and tons of times. Some great, some good and some not so good. I think all I can say is it happens. I don’t think I have ever encountered a tougher sport. See I grew up playing plenty of sports, but the ones with a ball. Six years ago I did not know one thing about swimming. What I have seen in those six years has really opened by eyes. I have learned that the older kids only get a chance 2-4 times a year to show that you have improved. You train countless hours and it leads up to just a couple of chances. I am not saying anything you don’t already know.

    My daughter who is now 12 was never the superstar young swimmer. She struggled early and saw other girls who started after her pass her up. Then something happen. Things started to click. She has made it her mission to pass those other girls on the team. She has passed a few, but more importantly closed the gap a ton on the others. She lives by the motto hard work eventually beats talent.

    I think all I can say is you just got knocked down and now what are you going to do? You can either stay down or get the F**** back up. Everyday when you put your suit on to get in the pool for practice think about that feeling after the race. And know you made the decision to keep moving forward. I look forward to reading your blog and will follow your progress.
