    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...
