    Thanks Mike it was a lot of fun.

    It turned out to be a shorter meet due to total number of entrants but I am pretty sure once word gets out it will grow. Our entire team swam awesome and it was great fun.

    Thanks again.

    Alex, thanks again for coming up to Dallas and it was great meeting you and your son; you have a lot to be proud of, he is a great young man counting for his father.

    On the goggle front I too use vanquisher goggles since they are reasonably priced and have my prescription in the optical goggles. My only real complaint is that they don't offer a mirror option which would be ideal for swimming backstroke at outdoor meets. Swimoutlet.com usually offers them at great prices.

    See you at the next meet.

    First up today was the 400 free and my goal was to beat my good friend Mr Unruh's #1 time of 4:28.91. I felt strong the whole way and other than a bad turn at 250 felt great. I finished really strong and was happy with my 4:28.05.
    Nicely done! Great way to end your season.

    I would be lieing if I said it felt anything other than awesome. I had a great meet and had a lot of fun.

    Sorry you you could not make this meet but hopefully we will do it again next season and you will get to compete in Rockwall. Many of the out of town teams were asking about us hosting another meet so it seemed to go really well.

    thanks Michelle. It was a lot of fun.

    I hope we can twist your arm to swim with the North Texas team at the Woodlands in November. It would be awesome to swim with you and Steph.

    Thanks Patrick. I believe you and Leslie commented on some of my earlier tapers that I was not resting enough and I really think you guys were onto something. This taper and the one I did during scm season I did my taper meet and then held it for another week and swam again. I really have done well on both of these despite the sickness challenge. I also really like the back to back meets because we train so hard and have so few fast masters meets it gives me two shots and/or do some different events.

    As for the 50 it's a tough one. I used to scoff at the 50 but after trying it, I have realized it is so hard to nail and I so admire those guys who are able to rock a 50 season after season.

    this feels like a race where I made so many basic mistakes and any one would have got me my goal time. This one is so frustrating.

    I don't think I've had a massage since March ... Super sore from those weights, so looking forward to it.
