  It has been six weeks (sorry!) since issue 50 but it feels like a few hours ago. So much has happened -- we went on an out-of-state team trip, celebrated Thanksgiving, rocked our mid-season taper meet and our younger kids crushed it at another meet. Now it almost time for 2020 - an Olympic year! At least once a week over the past month I sat down and tried to start this newsletter, only to fall into the rabbit hole of my to-do list. Anyway, here it is, issue #51, the last one for this year. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year! -RW
