    Good For the Soul

    I always had a deep connection with the ocean.  I grew up (partly) by the beach- I was only an hour away from the beaches of Rhode Island until we moved to Chicago when i was 6.  My parents brought me to the beach every weekend  as a baby/ toddler and that is...

    Part Fishy

    I love the water! Born and raised in Florida and probably at the beach the day my mother brought me home. Most of my childhood pictures have water and sand in the back ground, freckles across my nose and pink, sun kissed cheeks. My father was a life guard, surfer and diver and...

    I Swim To Relax.... NOT.

    When I swim I like to swim..... Not just sit around and gossip or muck about like most of my peers.I swim to be free and swim to have fun. I never swim less than 2.5 KM and this annoys most of those who join me when I swim. My Girlfriends especially hate it because they do their...

    Pretty Sure I Was Supposed To Be A Fish...

    Ever since I was a kid I loved swimming. We'd always go to the beach frequently during the summer as a family and spend the whole day there. Then we got a pool and it seemed like every day I'd be in there for hours on end. We'd have family and friends over and cook out and it was...

    Swimming Is My Life

    I'm a Pisces of course what a surprise. But yeah I'm on a swim team and I swim like everyday. I never have time really to do anything else anymore but my homework. My favorite stroke by far is breaststroke. Everyone on my team hates it. Do you all hate it too?

    Swimming Is Fun

    I have always loved to swim. When I was a child, we had a seimming pool. I stayed in the pool almost all summer, every summer (when we weren't at Fire Island at the beach!). I was like a seal, I stayed underwater and only came up for another breath before I went back down. I...

    I wish I lived near an ocean,

    clean lake or had a pool. I can stay in water for hours. It's very relaxing and natural to me.

    Peaceful

    I was swimming at the lake the other day as the sun was going down. It was beautiful and I felt a peaceful calm feeling just come over me. I haven't felt that way in a really long time. They say you shouldn't swim out to far into the lake or the current could take you. At that...

    I have loved swimming for as long as I can remember. I have spent so many summers by the pool. There is nothing like being in the ocean! My favorite is the Atlantic on the Florida coast! This spring I had a chance to take my kiddos to Coco beach. They loved it! It was an awesome...

    I love the butterflies I get in those seconds

    before the buzzer goes off. I love the shock of the water when I dive in. The exhilaration of not being able to look over in the next lane and pushing out as much energy as you can in the 1:30 that you lap.

    Favorite Form Of Exercise!

    Says it all in my username, LOL. I sure wish I was faster, though, and--um--as trim as I was a few years back. I need to drop about 20 and get back HARDCORE to the pool. I want to work-up to at least do a half Ironman, and would love to knock it out of the park in the swim!
