Funky vs. faboulous (race style)
-when your suit rips…right before your race.
-that moment a breastroker kicks you in the face.
-the awkward “I don’t want to slip and fall on the deck” walk
-when you have warm up before Starbucks is open. what’s a girl to do without her coffee?
-seeing people you kind of, sorta know, but don’t know if they recognize you back?
-when the kid racing you is just starting high school (unless you are also starting high school)
-that dance you do to get into your race suit.
-eating sandwiches for 5 days in a row.
-requesting “walk out” songs for finals.
-dancing on the deck.
-not knowing what the day or date is…because lets be honest, when you race, you are in a bubble.
-getting to kick it with your teammates all day long.
-living in sweats the entire day. actually, the entire meet.
-a brand spankin' new swim cap at the start of the meet.
-blasting pump up music, alllll day long.
-watching mindless TV in between prelims and finals (Jerry! Jerry! Jerry! or "The Price is Right")
-trading caps and making friends.
-finally getting to do what you train for.
