Short Course Yards Season has begun!

On February 10th, ten members of SilverPeak Performance descended upon the Rose Bowl and participated in Day One of the Rose Bowl Aquatics SCY Meet!  The results were, shall we say, a big splash!  Here’s what members had to say about their experience:

Lloyd Umail:

I enjoyed this meet a lot. It was efficiently-run by polite and respectful officials and volunteers. I especially liked the atmosphere – I thought it was light, fun, more personal to the swimmers. Basically, just get in the water and have fun! Being an outdoor pool helped with the atmosphere as despite an overcast throughout the meet, outdoor was still better than indoor, to me.

As a swimmer, it felt great to see my teammates cheer me on from the other side of the pool right on the deck – I liked that! In between my events, I enjoyed supporting my teammates, cheering them on as they crashed the walls and wowed us with their underwater prowess, and being close to the action.

As a team, I thought the event was a great bonding opportunity. We carried ourselves and represented SPP well – with pride, respect, finesse and smiles all around. Our sum was greater than its parts. Without a doubt, Together Everyone Achieves More – T.E.A.M.

Oh and yeah, we had fun and our loot of ribbons was super. Rock On!

Proud to be part of such an amazing group of people. Mostly, superbly proud of Coach Charles McPeak who inspires and encourages us every day. I feel very fortunate to be part of this team.

Race Report – Trick or Tri (October 28, 2017)

I think one of the most intimidating parts of completing your first triathlon is all of the coordinating involved. Between gear, transitioning, and the events themselves, there is a lot to think about! Thankfully Charles and Kris made it easy on me. Every step of the way, they were there to remind me what was important and what wasn’t for my first race. With their guidance, I felt prepared and relaxed before the race started!
When the race started, I panicked a little during the swim but it was over before I knew it. The rest of the race was great. I must have had a big cheesy smile on my face the whole time! Everyone’s energy is infectious. One of my favorite parts was socializing with other triathletes after the race. I told some about my swim and even the seasoned athletes could totally relate. They were very encouraging and had some great advice for how to relax if it ever happens again.
My goal was just to finish, but I ended up being really pleased with my time.  I’m so happy I just did it! Now I feel confident that going into my next race I’ll know what to expect. Can’t wait until next time. Thanks SPP for making it possible!
