Today we ran our final Powerstroke clinic of the year at the Triangle Aquatic Center in Cary. We had a number of athletes attend from out of state for this one so I made sure to drink an extra cup of coffee this morning. :)
Everything went well. Bri is a trooper. She works hard all week and then I put her to work with more on Saturday. Then she continues on with coaching on Sundays as well. I decided to write her a check this time if only for show (since what's mine is hers anyway).
I would write more but am marble-mouthed and -brained after talking for four hours straight.
We will post the Powerstroke and open water clinic schedules for next year sometime in December.
In other news, I just read that one of the United States best open water swimmers, Fran Crippen, passed away during a 10k race in the Middle East today. Tragic. He was a big proponent/fan of open water swimming and a great athlete. You can read more here.
