All Great Racers come to Indy

That's what the sign said anyway...

We spent a wonderful weekend in Indy at the Long Course State Swim meet.  August swam like a fish, as usual and had a good weekend.

She swam in the IUPUI Natatorium, which is a pretty cool place.  There is a lot of history with great swimmers having competed there.

The BEST swim coach!!!

This is somebody who has done something in swimming handing out the medals.  We just didn't know who.

There is a lot of swimming packed into the weekend. August had to qualify for the finals in the morning and then return in the evening to swim in the finals.  That's ok, though.  She was doing what she loves to do.  We were able to have dinner and get to know the other swim families a little better throughout the weekend.  It really was a great weekend.

August competed very well.  She finished 5th in the 50 back, 8th in the 100 back, 13th in the 50 breast, 13th in the 100 breast, and 14th in the 200IM.  We are so very proud of her.  She's an amazing young lady and we can't wait to see where God takes her with this amazing talent He has given her.

Here's a video of the 50 back  prelim race.  I need to learn to be quiet when I record.  I really don't like hearing my voice on here so, please, focus on August racing...she's in lane 5.
