THE side effects of being a swimmer....good and bad ~ But mostly GOOD!

Summer. Outdoor. Long Course.
A tan and funny tan lines are bound to happen but when one forgets to apply sunscreen the peeling can look much worse than the actual..


 Tan lines.....
I have seen plenty tan lines at the ankles from golfers and runners but nothing compares to the tan lines of a swimmer...ha!

 When the summer out door season comes to an end the tan lines and peeling fades as soon as one gets a few medals and we try to recreate a certain "Michael Phelps" look....

And before the start of his 800 free relay...

 Below Owen just finished his 200 and he and his teammates are watching the second swimmer...
Individual races are exciting but relays and working together as a team is amazing...


Here Owen and Matt had just showered and came up to find out their relay finished in 7th place.  Top 8 received medals so they were happy to collect theirs.

And of course I was happy to snap their picture right after.
I would have liked all 4 to be present but the other two had already showered and left.


 Once we got home I had Owen get all his medals he had earned from the weekend and his relay to REALLY recreate the "Phelps" look.....nicely done Owen!

We can't wait to see what PR's you may get when the high school season starts in a few months!
