AUSSIE TITLES!

As usual, i passed out early..about 8pm after much beer at the Surf Club and some socializing...
not the best regime for champions the day before the race...
so I woke up at 130 am not able to go back to sleep..
i thought that i wouldnt need half a sleeping pill (night time excedrin)...
so I took the half at 130 and it didnt even make me drowsy...
I was still awake enough to do well in the surf race in the over 55..
I was 15th among 28 swimmers and finally beat Leonard Cook, and missed out on Bill Haylock..
they have beaten me in all the other races this year...

so I know that Im at least peaking...
I felt like I was winning in the tube rescue race, but swam to the wrong buoy , perhaps missing out on winning a medal in the final... oh well...
but I feel now that I can beat at least half of my competition over 55 in Oz!
a little more intensive training and I'll be winning in the masters!

so im discovering a new person out of this racing in the surf...
taking a wave after waiting for her and she arrives..
i could have been with her just a little bit longer...
and perhaps be 9th instead of 15th..
being in a race with the best of them that are my age and a few years..
im finding out more about my inner fortitude about what i can do that i didnt think that perhaps i had that strength... and discovering, yes... I do have the strength..
I am a father and I see the strength in our son's eyes...
and we can do whatever we want as a team...
