Matt Swims Again!


I wanted to do a quick post and let everyone know that Matt had a swim meet in the long course (50 meter) pool in Draper on Friday. He swam the 50 meter freestyle and WON! He also got his best time of 24.57! His best time before that was 24.61.  For those who don't know the difference, there is a 25 yard pool and a 50 meter pool (Olympic size). In 25 yard pool you swim down and back, in the 50 meter pool you swim just one way. He has not swam in a long course pool since August of 2006.  He did really well for not having been able to swim hardly at all since he started his new job. Now that he has his series 7 and 63 license there is no more studying and he can focus more on getting back into swimming. He just loves to swim and compete. It's a fun and good way for him to keep in shape like he wants to.  I am so proud of him and of his accomplishments. Way to go swimmer man!

Ready... Set... Dive! (Matt is the one in the middle)

Our friend Brent came to help us give Matt support. Matt considers him his lucky charm because each time Brent has come to watch Matt, he gets a new best time. Keep coming Brent!
