BEST ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED

  1. Swim your own race.
    At the time it was referring to how I should approach a 500 freestyle event compared to my competition, but it's also doubled as excellent life advice.
  2. Keep your head in the game and go for the goal.
    In field hockey and in life.
  3. You can change everything about the house except the location, so hold out for the right neighborhood.
  4. Wear a blazer to look more put-together.
  5. Drive the wall.
    More swimming-meets-life advice. Don't coast when the finish is in sight.
