No Guts, No Glory


So yesterday we attended a swim meet traveling about an hour from our pool to theirs. The meet was billed as a Masters mini-meet . For those who don’t know Masters swimming is for anyone over 18. So here’s what I came away with. There were swim meet newbies and experienced swimmers mixed in.  I went with the intention of getting an idea about good times for any given event. I came away with something else. I saw swimmers who were slower than I am and I saw them swim with people who were really fast but what I didn’t see was anybody quit. There were races where everyone was finished and out of the pool before the last person finished.  They never stopped until they finished no matter what.

I came away with a sense of the possibilities. I will compete in the spring or summer. What’s the worst that can happen? I come in last. So what. No guts, no glory!
