I just started swimming competitively at the end of last summer. I'm more of an open water distance swimmer, but last winter I got in the pool quite a bit and did some swim meets. I did well at those. This summer I was very excited about doing open water/distance swimming, so I did a race almost every weekend! I've done very well in them. I'm better at swimming than I've ever been at anything in my entire life. Probably my best finish this summer was at the Alcatraz Sharkfest swim on July 28th. I got 4th overall (out of over 800 swimmers) and 3rd in the wetsuit division:

Was 21 seconds behind first place. I was with him the whole way, but just couldn't keep up at the end, darn it!

Yeah, definitely! We should have some nice plants to offer next year provided I don't lose more cultures. I've had a terrible spring/summer for contamination losses. I started having mold problems sometime in March and it got progressively worse. I essentially lost everything I had in TC other than what I initialized this spring. But I did some nice ones this spring that look clean and are in need of a replate now.
