This week at Swimcrest

In all honesty, it’s the last few weeks at Swimcrest. Good things are happening.

Some learned to be buoyant and let go of their fears about the water.

This swimmer took 8 strokes off of her 25-yard freestyle.

I trained for my upcoming Lake Zurich 15-miler with a long, long, long swim. I placed a ring on the pool deck every time I finished 1000 yards.

And yes, it was a lot of flip turns.

And my mom, 68-years-old and never a swimmer, never a put-your-face-in-the-water person, and never water confident Learned to Swim.

So proud of them all.
