That's it. It's over. Years of practices. Weekends of swim meets. Tears and sorrows and joys and victories. Jill has really loved swimming. It will be hard for her for it to be finished. It has had a great positive impact on her life. She is one of the most fit people I know. She has amazingly positive body confidence. She is a fabulous swimmer. She knows how to work hard. She has made great friends and been a leader. Swimming is a big commitment, but for all it gives back, I'd say it is worth it.
Once strange thing this year is Jill has been the only girl amongst a bunch of boys in her squad. These are some great boys. This was taken earlier this year at the Pan Am pool in Winnipeg.
