The meet in N. Myrtle Beach was a great one for me. After a few years of so so meets it is nice to have a good one. All of my times were faster than last year or last time I swam them. Highlights were the distance events 1650 free dropped 5 seconds from last year, 500 free went under 6:30, 200 back a 4 second drop from earlier this season, 400 IM dropping 3 seconds from my last swim. The best came at the end though 100 back breaking 1:20 which I have not been able to in the last 3 years and finishing with a strong 200 Fly right at my best for the year and it felt good.

There were other events too and they were ok, you know those sprint things that I have just decided to do what I do best.

    Congrats regarding your meet performance.

    Though I admit I am biased, that meet was done perfectly. The results were available before you were even finished warming down for the event, and easy to find without reading glasses as they were filed individually and alphabetically. Just an overall well organized and prepped meet.
