No Regrets

I would like to Thank everyone for all of their support and love on my journey to make the  Canadian Olympic Team. I did everything I could do to get there but just had an extremely bad meet/month..... i hurt my lower back lifting weights(could barley walk) and then got the flu for a week..... going way off my best times and have gone faster with intense training on my back... but shit happens and there is nothing i can do about that now but move forward onto my next journey......  So whats next..... I took a much need vacation to my favorite city...Pittsburgh! ... Pitt is a second home to me and I always have a good time there....seeing family,amazing friends and hitting up the hofbrauhaus house(best brewery in the world) .....

I had some other very upsetting news this month.... i just found out that my Grand Father past away..... He was an amazing man who always made everyone laugh and helped me to be the person i am today...we would always play games and he would never go easy on me....even when i was very young..... he would always play his best and it made me get better... i applied this to many things in my life and i cant thank him enough....it was something so simple but is something i still remember to this day practicing so hard at those games so that i could beat him one day(and i did took a while though..haha)..... He was an amazing man and i am glad he got to live a long happy life(he was 90 when he passed).... I mean how many people get to take shots of vodka and party with their Grampa....We had a lot of great times and i learned a lot from him....may he rest in peace....love you Grampa..... The funeral will be held next friday and then our whole family is heading to Cuba to celebrate his life...... which is something he wanted and something i agree with.... that we should celebrate someones life when they pass on......going to Cuba is just a bonus

After Cuba i intend to swim until summer Nationals and then go from there.... like i said in my last blog if i had the money i would keep swimming until my body couldn't do it anymore...

Thanks again to everyone for all their support
