Time out of the water

Like many of my teammates at World Championships, I flew straight from Shanghai to California to compete at U.S. Nationals.  After a schedule like that, time away from the pool is usually necessary to mentally and physically reset for the upcoming season.  I was able to get back home to North Carolina for a week.  If you’re a Raleigh native, you know how glad I was to be standing in line at restaurants like Bojangles’ and Smithfield’s!
