I’m A Swimmer, Again!

Last weekend, myself and the rest of the Butler Swim Club competed at the IU Swim Club Hoosier Classic Invite. Wow, that’s a mouthful. It was an absolute blast. Other than my high school alumni meet, I had not competed since first semester of my sophomore year.

Anyway, it felt great to get back in the water and race other college swimmers. The competition was not quite as grueling as it was at NCAA meets, but I was still very proud of my second place finishes in the 200 free and 500 free, and our second place 200 free relay finish. My times weren’t lifetime bests, but for my first college meet in over 2 years, they weren’t too shabby. My 200 time was 1:56.40 and my 500 was 5:24.40. Perhaps most surprising to me was my relay split of 23.80. That time certainly is not impressively fast, but for a distance swimmer it is something to smile about.

At the meet, it was proposed that we have swim club record times for each event, and that they be posted online. I agreed with the suggestion and several days later, redesigned the swim club site from the ground up. I’m quite happy by how it turned out.

At any rate, I’m a swimmer again and am enjoying every moment of it!

I Came, I Swam, I Conquered?
