Soooo..... I might be a wee bit competitive.
Just a wee bit!
Yesterday in the pool we had to run down 1/2 the length of the pool and swim to the end and swim back. Alrighty - game on I thought. We had 2 lines of people so NATURALLY it was competitive. Gavin and I paired off. I looked at him and swam a totally different stroke and speed I originally had planned. Because - I couldn't let him beat me lol... I just couldn't!
Our first lap was neck and neck. Fast forward to our 2nd time.
Gavin started 1/2-3/4 of the way down the pool before my teammate tagged me.
It was a classic underdog situation. I HAD to rise to the occasion! I ran as fast as I could in the water and swam with my all. I actually closed the distance considerably and he finished just a moment before me. Honestly - I almost caught him. I'm not sure how close I was - I was kind of distracted by the feeling that my heart was going to beat outside of my chest! Paula will have to weigh in on that one - I was really just focused like a laser beam!
Hope we race again - now that was fun!
