Tell us about your DNF & the lessons you learned from it.
DNF, the acronym that makes any athlete cringe. In my book it’s worse than finishing DFL. Recently, I was inspired by an amazing swimmer who had a disappointing DNF at MIMS 2013. She came back to win this most prestigious event a few weeks ago. I thought, “Wow, so even world class swimmers sometimes DNF. Wonder how someone like that deals with the disappointment.” So I am posing the question, not knowing if anyone will be willing to talk about the subject. But if you do, know that people like me will appreciate learning from your experience.
