    Once a competitor....

    always a competitor. I started in grade 6 in Portage-la-Prairie. I've competed in AFCent (Allied Forces Central Europe). Once my times were good and in one if the middle three lanes I had a bad habit of being the last on the blocks and looking left and right, putting a small...

    Swimming Keeps Me Alive

    I've been having trouble lately, not gonna lie.  This guy (the one mentioned in my username) was on track with me and I had to see him every single day of the week after school, and that broke my heart every day because I'll never have him. ANYWAYS, now that track season is over...
