Remembering the days!

ImageWhen I was young I was a competitive swimmer. Now am blessed to work for the same program I trained with and one of my favorite times of year is summer long course Junior Olympics.
Most of these kids wake up in the early am to train every day – essentially giving up their summer break! Let me tell you, when I was a kid, I HATED waking up at the crack of dawn when all my other friends got to sleep in – no sleepovers, late nights or anything most would deem as childhood summer fun!
But it was all worth it to when it came time for competition! I see the same excitement in the eyes of our swimmers and remember how it felt – it’s totally awesome!
I commend these kids for their commitment – they have no idea how talented they truly are!
