World Champion!

Posted in FINA 2011 World Championships on

I finally got to swim on the last two days of the World Champs, swimming in the finals of both the 50 breaststroke and the 50 freestyle. These two races happened to be less than 15 minutes apart. I got the short end of the stick with the event organization, having 6 days off in the middle of the meet, and no recovery time when it finally WAS time for me to swim. Funny story: at international competitions, you are required to go to a "ready room," where you are secluded with the participants of y…

DJing

Posted in Interests and Hobbies on

Superstitions

Posted in FINA 2011 World Championships on

I am a superstitious athlete. Some of the rituals i like to do before I find myself at race day include, getting a mani/pedi (I'm rcokin' hot pink this week), putting on my lucky earrings (my great-grandmother's beautiful diamond earrings), completely shaving down every hair of my body (took almost 2 hours, yikes), and update my ipod with music that will get my adrenaline pumping.

Uniforming

Posted in Qualifying for the National Team on

One of the best parts about qualifying for a National Team is the BIG box of stuff that appears on your doorstep leading up to your travel. I remember in 2005, leading up to my first World Championships in Montreal, receiving that box for the very first time; I was more excited to receive that than any other Christmases in my life.
