    Swimming Keeps Me Alive

    I've been having trouble lately, not gonna lie.  This guy (the one mentioned in my username) was on track with me and I had to see him every single day of the week after school, and that broke my heart every day because I'll never have him. ANYWAYS, now that track season is over...

    Swimming Saved Me

    Swimming Built Courage

    When I joined my high school swim team, I was a real no-body. Coming into high school, I knew absolutely no one, and I was never a social type of person. After about a week, an announcement was made that said the Swim team was needing people. My teacher called me in and told...

    Once a competitor....

    always a competitor. I started in grade 6 in Portage-la-Prairie. I've competed in AFCent (Allied Forces Central Europe). Once my times were good and in one if the middle three lanes I had a bad habit of being the last on the blocks and looking left and right, putting a small...
