After meeting with my tutor, I went over to the Aquatic Center to see Meredith swim in a meet there. Her triathlon coach encouraged them to join Curl Burke's Masters Team and swim in some of these meets to get more practice and experience with the swim portion. By doing this, Curl Burke gets distance credit.
Meredith takes off:
She had an excellent showing overall, especially since it was her first time out at this. Amusingly enough, the woman in lane one got out of the pool after 12 minutes because she "wasn't feeling it" so they DQ'ed her. Better than that though, the heat before Meredith swam, they called time when the slowest guy was only on lap 37 (they have to swim 66 laps) and was handed his cane when he got out of the pool. Good for him that he can get his swim on at 134 years old, but damn did he hold everything up.
