I had a great time at QUAC's Ski-n-Swim meet today! QUAC has got to be the best organized club in the state. They ran a great meet and I think everyone there had a lot of fun.
I had agreed to join a relay team with Gords, Goody and Chad Starks. We entered all three relays (200 free, 200IM and "Martini"). We actually won the 200 free relay and I think we got second on the other two. Not bad! I hope we can get this team together again in some of the upcoming meets.

I entered the 50 free, 500 free and 100 free and was pretty happy with all of my times. I ended up with 26.15 on the 50 (I did 25.76 in the 200 free relay), 6:01.01 on the 500 (so close to breaking 6 minutes!) and 58.40 (I was hoping to get under a minute and didn't expect to go this fast, especially after the 500). My friends all did great! Many of them did better than they expected and improved their times.
|A cool feature of the online system used at the meet is that you can see a graph of your splits. Obviously I went out WAY too fast on the first 50 and then settled into a good pace. I "sprinted" the last 50.|
All in all, a great day!
