It was a Saturday morning meet. As I walked up to the block, I thought "I've never raced a 50 meter free before." When I got on the block I felt nervous, but then the bell rang. I took off for the other side and realized I was beating everybody. Then I got to the other side -- I won! I got out of the water, then went to my bench and high-fived my coach. My time was 44.23 seconds. I improved by 14.23 seconds. I was very proud.
I love swimming because it's like gliding through the water. I also like it because it's my best sport! I like cycling too because it's my second best sport so far. It's kind of like kicking your feet up and down, so I guess it reminds me of swimming. I would talk about the run more, but I don't like it. My Mom says I'll be like Andy Potts, so I guess that's not so bad!
