    why I swim competitively?

    This is an interesting story to say the least. Many people know that I have 2 sisters, but not a lot of people know that I had a brother as well at one time. Henry is the twin of my 12 year old sister and he drowned in a pool of a friends of my parents when he was 4. Us...

    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...

    Well I Used To Be..

    For about 10 years I attended a swimming club almost every night and loved it. I had good friendships with the rest of the team and have lots of good memories. I used to go to galas, my favourite were those when we would travel on the bus without our parents to faraway swimming...

    I coach a neighborhood swim team

    and today was the first round of championships for our little kids (10 and younger). It sucks that we came in last place, but I'm sure our older kids will do much better!

    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...

    Swimming Saved Me

    I joined my high school's swimming team this year, my second year there. My teammates, when I first met them at the informational meeting, were kind of intimidating. I only knew one of them, and we weren't even that close. But I started getting to know them and while we still...
