Today Brandon swam a 2 mile race and then a 1 mile race. They call this weekend a “Triple Dipper” for him since he participated in all three race. 66 people signed up for the triple dip but only 46 completed it. Brandon got 29th! He finished 4th in his division for both the 2 miler and the 1 miler. Again relying a good meaty burger and veggies the night before and a Thunderbird Energetica Bar, banana and TONS of water for a pre-race breakfast. I am so proud of him and it was a great accomplishment for someone who was told it would be a long time, if ever, that he would be able to swim competitively again.
