    I enjoy the scent of chlorine.

    I enjoy splashing. (I avoid doing so normally due to the lap walkers. D< ) I enjoy fighting the associated stereotype that blacks people don't swim(seriously, I do find that most prefer a permed hairstyle. Chemically treated and pools simply don't mix. :/ ) I enjoy...

    I have been swimming since age 6. I was on swim teams in high school and in college. I love to dive and use the high dive board. Today I swim laps and do diving.

    I went to college on a swimming scholarship.

    Swimming is a great way of keeping my tall, lean, and shapely body in tip top shape. I enjoy skinny dipping in my heated Arizona home pool. I do laps when I have time at home. Also, I have and use my diving board and long slide too for enjoyment.
