We're all just carbon, water, starlight, oxygen and dreams
I swam competitively through high school and came to Drexel University to swim on the varsity team. I was forced into early retirement due to a combination of injuries and increasing school load just 2 years in.
Excellence is born of preparation, dedication, focus and tenacity; compromise on any of these and you become average.
It's always a bad hair day when you work at a pool.
@dredpiraterobts One of the biggest problem facing women today is the expectation that we will be found on the second tier and forgetting to look on the first tier where we've been all along.
Completed FKCC Swim around Key West (well run swim by the way) this past Saturday, and think the 12.5 mile swim may have been more difficult than IM race, but that may be a memory bias. Have other's experienced that? Pretty painful for the last 3 miles, but I felt a great sense of accomplishment, and plan to continue with marathon swims..Hence joining this forum. Thanks for having me!
