One of the fun things that's happened around here over the past few months is that Liam has joined the local swim team, the Pool Sharks. This makes my greedy little triathlon-lovin' heart ever so happy. I'm picturing the two of us doing kick sets together for years to come and having him give me pointers to hone my technique.
Today was Liam's first meet. There was actually a meet last month that we didn't make it to, so most of the kids have been in this environment before, but not us. As luck would have it, this meet is hosted by our swim club, so at least we had the familiarity of being at our own pool. The day started at 7 a.m. when Liam had to be on deck for a 45 minute warm-up swim.
He was supposed to swim the relay leg too, but one of the other kids on his team was sick today so the whole team had to forfeit because they didn't have the numbers they needed. Ah well... next meet is only 3 weeks away, so he'll have the opportunity then. We were out of the building by about 1:30 since we didn't have to stick around for the last event.
Great swimming today, Liam!
