2009 SPMA Santa Clarita SCY Masters Meet: Personal best 100-free: 57.54 • Personal best 50-free: 25.64
Ahelee was in that heat as well and she is standing next to me 'stage left.'
FAIL! - Look at the two losers in the air. We are so out-classed by Ahelee for she has the reaction time of antelope! I guess the rest of us need to start playing "Whack-a-Mole" or something to speed up our pathetic slow-motion starts. As for now, time dilates when Ahelee is on the blocks!
The race was close from beginning to end. Look at Ahelee's reach; I am the guy at the bottom of the photo.
I need to work on shoulder flexibility; I am going to work on my kick as well. What happens to people on the third-lap of the 100-free? It's starts off with so much promise and ends in so much pain.
I came in at 57.54, a personal best and I was elated. I even got a blue ribbon after tying for first with a swimmer from Bakersfield. What made the win feel so good is that there were 10-people in my age-group trying hard for that ribbon and I got to share it with all the right people at the swim meet.
Rob of RobAquatics took these photos and I very flattered he shared them. Rob too swam a personal best in the 100 IM by .2 seconds after a 4-second drop 2-weeks earlier at the Cal Tech Pentathlon. Here he is below:
