I don’t really have a lot to say right now, other than I am a very happy boy. I’m tired and my legs are on fire after a second shave this afternoon but I have a big smile on my face.

I had a solid swim in the heats this morning that was very relaxed and controlled and my goal was to simply reproduce that swim again tonight using the energy and adrenalin of the finals to help me swim a little faster. I think I may have been a little bit too relaxed on the first 50 and didn’t get out fast enough to achieve my goal of being under 54.00 and breaking the national record, but that is a minor detail!

If you didn’t get a chance to watch it live, Austin put together a sweet video of the race especially for all of you! Thanks Austin! Here it is… Enjoy

So many people have supported me and helped me along the way and I am very, very grateful to all of you. This would not have been possible without so many of you! Thank you. It’s not over yet though. The 200 Breaststroke is tomorrow. What will happen? Only time will tell.
