This weekend, we traveled south for Noh-man to compete in another swim meet. It was held in a facility much smaller than our own, but that actually made for a nice change of pace. The stands, for one thing, sat much closer to the pool than they do at our home site, and so it was much easier to cheer and wave to our big guy as he marched past. The crowds were also much smaller, and as a result, the events flew by and we were in and out of there fairly quickly.
The highlight of the weekend, however, had nothing to do with the complex; it had everything to do with our racing machine... once again he proved that perseverance and determination really do pay off.
- In 5 of his 6 races, Noh-man dropped time (almost 4.5 seconds in his 100 freestyle!)
- In 3 of those events, he took first place, and in the other 3, he came in second
- And those boys that beat him to the finish line, they were 8; Noh was the fastest 7 year-old in the water.
