The dates arrived

Thanksgiving:
The dates for my channel attempt came in the mail today. It will be sometime between the 20 and 27th of September 2004. This morning was a tough one. Since the email that was sent about "how Laura only did well in the Points competition because she is determined not because she is fast" it has been really hard. It kind of sucks when you find that you are a joke in the community that you consider your social life. I hope that I never have the same effect on anyone who swims no matter what their capabilities and dreams. I want to be proud of those that win, just as proud of those that just finish and supportive to those that have the courage to try whether it is a 500 yard swim or a marathon swim.
Today I'm grateful for my real friends and for the dreams I have.

Hurray for swimming!

Yay! you have a date with the channel!

Now ... DO NOT MISS IT! And GET IN SHAPE!

And does the e-mail from that one person, implying you are a joke, reflect the opinion of *everyone* in the swimming community? I don't think so. I've never expected to be liked by everone, am used to the fact that there always will be those that don't like me. Embrace the friends you have, ignore your enemies.
