Open Swim anyone?

With Dad's encouragement one of Mom's goals this year was to swim in the Cornhusker State Games, 1000 meter, open swim! And accomplish it she did!!

If she got tired we couldn't tell as her smooth stroke never lagged a bit!

Those faithful trips to the YMCA payed off as she walked up to receive her gold medal (for her age group)!
Her personal best of 15:51 won her the gold medal in her age group and she placed 8th out of 15!

Congratulations Mom!!
We love you and were happy to be there to cheer you on!

I should get in the water one of these days...it's been a while since my swim team days but what a lot of fun they were! :)

That is amazing! Way to go!! If I hadn't have been in Little Rock during that time, I really thought about swimming in the Games this year. Such fun, you did really well!
