    swimming is something very important to me.

    when your underwater the chaos is gone. you are hearing a symphony of silence under the water. your mind is cleared of worries, problems, and struggle. you are in your own world focusing on your own thing-swimming. I have been swimming for just a little while now but I really...

    Two miles breast stroke was always my ambition,

    and I achieved that distance while I was still at school. I swim almost every day. It is an essential fitness regime for me, added to a little workout in the gym.
