"You don't lead by pointing and telling people someplace to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case."
~Ken Kesey, American Novelist

What a great October!  Thank you to all parents that helped out at our team hosted swim meet.  With out you're help we can not host meets.  That was the largest our Sprint Series has ever been!  We had great feed back from the other teams about how well run our meet was.  This November we have some travel meets.  We are looking forward to taking our speed on the road! 

With the cold and flu season in full swing, please try to keep yourselves and your family healthy.  You can follow @GoTimeFit on social media for daily wellness, nutrition, and exercise tips. 
REMINDER:  When signing up for events...If you see a time that is red; they do not meet the reqs established by the meet director.  After you sign up, periodically check your entries to see if they were approved or stopped.

The Biggest Mental Mistake Swimmers Make at Big Meets and How to Avoid It

By Dr. Alan Goldberg
