    Not A Sport, Huh?

    To all the football players who say swimming isn't a sport: **** you. Go play football til you throw up. ;) (yeah, good luck with that) til you can swim a varsity swim workout, you have no right to judge.

    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...

    Well...sort Of...

    I learned to swim when I was 2 1/2 years old in a lake in central Florida. Swam and played in pools all my life. During grad school, I swam laps regularly...the single time in my life I have exercised regularly. Now that I am, (ahem) a gentleman"of a certain age" I cannot keep...

    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.
