2009 SWIM SEASON (Part One)

This has been a wild swim season. Several meets were delayed for lightning, meaning that sometimes S's last event did not conclude until after 10:00 PM. We learned just how hardcore swim team can be as we sat in the rain for 3.5 hours with umbrellas and ponchos waiting for S's next event. Despite swimming in the rain, and a "disgusting" saltwater pool, she managed a couple of personal records at that meet.

Here are some of our favorite pictures from the few good-weather meets we enjoyed this year:


Pre-race preparation (We'd love to know what she's really thinking):







A quick break in the psyching-up process to smile for the camera:





Ready, Set, Go!








And here she is nearly stopping to smile for the camera. "I wanted to look good in the pictures." That's our girl!

Way to go Saige! (And way to go parents too for marathon rain endurance!)
