    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!

    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...

    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...

    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...
