04/02/2005: "Silver!!!"

It turns out that my race from yesterday was better than I thought... good enough for Silver in my age group. There were only 3 of us, but going into the meet I was expecting to get 3rd by default... now I only have to improve by another 5 minutes by next year to challenge the gold.

Today I only had one event, so that meant I took a lot more pictures... which of course are online, and can be viewed at: http://www.paulgraham.ca/gallery/2005_masters_swim

I swam in the 4x50m freestyle relay today, in the anchor position... and somehow got the fastest split of the 4 of us. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the other 3 guys doing the 400m freestyle earlier in the day. Regardless, it was a fantastic time for me, and as a team we finished in 2:12. The results haven't been posted for that event, so I'm not sure what placing we'll get.
