Personal Best

Yesterday was Nathans last official swim meet of his senior year {tear tear for me}. This season has been so so at best.....but man...Nathan sure did fantastic in his last two meets.........Funny...........he did that last year. I   really wanted to see my son end his swim career on a good note. I believe he did this. Nathan was disqualified in one event and made a personal best in another. 

Going strong on his 100 butterfly
 only to be DQ'd on his last 10 yards as his arms became uneven

This was okay though, as Nathan still had his 500 freestyle to go. His best time ever was a 6:30 (last meet Jr year). I was hoping he would give it his all and he did. He started off strong and was able to keep the pace up. At this point I was just wanting to see Nathan get the bell (meaning that he was in first going into the last 50 yards)...He got the bell and we were all excited...however...he came in second {bummer}. He was barely touched out...but had a finishing time of 6:20. I think this was a fantastic way to go out!

Looking at the score board while catching his breath
