I said that I’d had a quiet weekend blog-wise as we were away in Kona for a two day swimming event. Mira swims for the Hilo Aquatics Swimming Club (HAQ) also knows as “The Poi Dog Paddlers”! That’s a great name and emphasizes the mix of cultures that the club celebrates and the feeling of ohana that permeates the team.
Having made the Long Course State Championships last summer, Mira was aiming to qualify again for the Short Course State Champs in two weeks time, but having only just aged-up in the last two weeks, the new times she needed were out of reach this time. But to her total credit, she continued her good progress (after a shaky start to the season) and has her sights on the summer Champs.
Here she is with dad having a little snack between events.
