  1. Way back when I was a real swimmer, I created a collage of the great breaststrokers. It was pictures of all my competition right after they had broken a world record, or won NCAAs or a very big meet. I put this collage right behind my alarm clock. Every morning when it went off and I had to reach over to turn it off, I had to stare at their victorious faces. There was a good chance when the pictures were taken, I was in the race in another lane. While I liked the people, I didn’t appreciate them being so happy at those moments at my expense. My goal was to never see that look on their faces again. While I didn’t always reach the goal, I did a few times… which was pretty cool. 🙂

    Thanks Nick, very important stuff!
