Second Swim Meet for Haley

Despite having an ongoing cough, Haley swam in her second swim meet on 2/9. This was the “home” swim meet, at the Burlingame Aquatic Club (Burlingame HS). It was our first outdoor meet, and given that we were there just after 7am it was FREEZING! It was 39 degrees when we got in the car and a toasty 42 degrees when we arrived. We were cold even when we left just before noon.

Haley had a nasty cough left over from a cold so was ambivalent about swimming at all, but she was a champ, swimming both of the events she’d signed up for. The 200 yd breast stroke was her first in a meet. She didn’t get disqualified for form or any other reason (as kids often do their first time swimming a stroke in a meet, especially the breast stroke), and got a decent time. Her second event was the 50yd freestyle. She was pretty exhausted by then, but did it anyway. Her time of 45.36 seconds was about 4 seconds more than her previous time of 39.89, but we were all just happy she did the race at all given how she felt.
