Well, she swam 500 free tonight and knocked off 15 seconds, coming .02 below the JO cut (which was last week). Until tonight this was Grace’s least favorite race. I have never seen her quite so happy after a race!
Thanks to both coaches for believing in her, even when she didn’t.
For tonight, that homemade fudge was much better for her than a bag of carrots. What we dangle in front of a child, be it the hypothetical carrot or some fudge, if it works it works. We go to bed happy.
