Malia’s swim meet was so good. I was so proud of her.
Of course, in the sports world, seconds mean everything. She clocked in at 33 seconds in her freestyle. I thought it was amazing for her first race and it definitely lit a fire in her. But man, the there were kids who were .1-1sec ahead of her. But still it was so fun to watch. Her backstroke was the one I was nervous about because she was always flipping onto her stomach too early because she was afraid of hitting the wall. We were worried she would be DQ’d but she rocked it.
We’re happy to get some base line numbers for her and look forward to how she grows with the sport.
