So far I've lost 5 pounds covering the Olympic Trials. While that's more of a reflection of my pre-Trials shape rather than the physical demands of not-competing, there's still a lot of running around, late nights, coffee drinking, and interviews to gather. I'm now back in Brooklyn writing and working remotely, so I have some free time to share with anyone who cares what I've been doing in Omaha. Here are a few features I've written on the USASwimming.org website:
What Matt Grevers Learned.
Claire Donahue Seizes Her Moment.
Replacing Third Place Tears.
Where Dreams Come True.
I also write bad jokes on Twitter, in case you're interested in not laughing. My Twitter handle is @MikeLGustafson.
Finally, is anyone else already depressed that Trials will be over soon? I'm almost contemplating DVRing Trials and watching only three seconds every day just to prolong the event until the Olympics.... Or maybe I should just find this guy.
