    [Masters/Rec/2300 yds/60 min]

    It's been a busy week with my oldest brother and his family visiting from Washington State. He swam at UMass in the early '90s and usually hops in for a once a year workout but opted out. Today we are gather with other family for a small reunion, and it happens that today is also the 23rd anniversary of my mom passing away. It's nice to have extended family in town to help share some stories of the past. We had a nice visit with my aunt from Boston on Thursday as well.

    Here is a picture from the old homestead, with the farmhouse where my dad grew up to the left. I grew up about a quarter-mile way closer to the farm.

    Well my pacing was sort of all over the place, so not sure how to read that. On the other hand, I hit 100,000 meters for the month of June. Definitely time to taper!
