Never too much encouragement
My swim crew sees no limits for themselves or for me. I often remind them that I am years older than most (not all) but they tell me so what. Diving off the blocks? I say not going to happen, they say yes it is. Swimming freestyle without my fins? Still a struggle but I am encouraged that with practice I will be able to do it. They have become a new part of my family and I am thinking that I will do some of this stuff. We listen to so much negative stuff. In our own minds, from those who say they care, co-workers, employers. You know the deal. It’s nice to hear what you can do. After a while you begin to believe it!

I have to tell you–your blog is awesome! Very upbeat and inspiring…I feel like I have gone through all of your swimming chronicles with you! Years ago, I taught myself how to swim, and a year later I did my first triathlon. A year after that I did an ironman. You can do what you set your mind to…thank you for sharing with us!!!
Thanks for the kind and encouraging words. Days like today they mean a lot
