On the United States Masters Swimming website, there is a discussion forums thread entitled, “Swim Happy”, where swimmers can post something swimming-related that made them happy.
I was happy, yesterday, when the 2013 USMS Top Ten rankings were released for short course (25 yard pool), and I learned that an 800 Yard Mixed Free Relay I was on placed in the Top Ten, just making it in at #10.
Today, my swim buddy and teammmate, Judd (“Swimosaur” on the forums), informed me that I made Top Ten in another relay; one that I swam on with him, at Georgia Tech, in April, along with another swim buddy of mine, Jennifer. Not only did we make Top Ten; we placed 6th! What a surprise!
Swimosaur, you made my day!
Congratulations, Mrs. Swim Happy!!
