Today I woke up around 7:45 and was way too excited to sleep anymore! I was pretty excited to get on the road and get over to the pool. The drive was not bad, seeing it was only two hours long. This is much more preferred compared to the eight-hour bus ride we had to drive for MACs. We still seemed to need a bathroom break. 

When we got to the pool, we had to check in and receive our credentials. Finally, I was able to swim. I have never been to this pool before but I have only heard good things about it, so I was very excited to jump in and get a feel for it myself. The pool is just as nice as everyone has been saying. It has that fast feel to it. 

After I got a good feel for the water, we went back to the hotel where I did a little bit of homework. When I say I did homework, I mean I read three pages in my sociology book, watched tv and took a nap, haha. 

All and all, it was a pretty low-key day. I am about to shave down for my last time, which is weird to say, then do a little more "homework". Tomorrow is going to be a very exciting day and I cannot wait to swim the 50 free!!! 

Love and Honor,
