Lilah Nails it at Season End Swim Championships

The two weeks leading up to the season ending swim championships Lilah took on the familiar role of constant complainer. She complained about the venue and the slippery diving blocks. She complained about the cold weather. She complained about the slow pool. And she complained about how her coach couldn’t simply be happy with her team taking first and second place in her event. Instead, the coach wondered aloud in practice about who would “win” the year end meet. “Who cares who wins first place,” Lilah said to me in the car on one of her rants. She also added that there was no way she was going to achieve her goal of a sub 38-second time for the 50 yeard breaststroke because the pool was just too slow. My job in these moments is to simply let her vent.
