Happy Thanksgiving!

Its almost Thanksgiving.. and we have a lot to be thankful for.. thankful we can 'feel' for our friends in Alberta, without being in Alberta(wink).. thankful for the fantastic group of people we get to hang out with at the pool everyday, from parents who relentlessly transport kids back and forth (and pay their swim bills!), to volunteers and coaches who make so much to happen, to the fabulous athletes who keep showing up full of energy ready to pursue excellence in spite of all the challenges they face day to day.

Eric Hedlin had a breakthrough swim at the Pan-Pacs in Tokyo today placing 2nd behind American Jordan Wilimovsky.   The Pan-Pacs and Europeans are the 2 major competitions in current cycle and while Eric had previously finished in the medals in the 5km distance he had not been able to translate that success to the 10km Olympic distance until today!
