Back in Charlotte after PanAms, the entire SwimMAC Elite group overlapped for one day. We were excited to see the rest of group off to Worlds. Following a couple of weeks of training in Charlotte I spent a week at home with my family (and my home club!) before Nationals in San Antonio. I was thrilled to have a Nationals in my home state!
Nationals was… hot. But also a ton of fun! The Northside Aquatic Center hosted a wonderful meet. The stands were packed every night and there was a lot fast swimming to watch!
Highlights of Nationals
- Winning my first ever summer US National title in the 100 breaststroke in my home state! Don’t mess with Texas!
- Seeing many of my previous coaches. I was lucky to have some incredibly talented and wonderful coaches when I was growing up in Texas. I am the swimmer (and person) I am today because of all these coaches. It makes my heart happy to see them on deck helping others as they helped me.
- My dad surprised me and braved the heat to watch me swim!
- Many, many laughs with SwimMAC Elite (as per usual).
