Nagez, nagez, nagez!

I went back to swimming again this summer after an almost 5 year hiatus. I had a lot of fun swimming in the summer and it was a great refresher for the swim team that I’m currently on. I don’t know why I quit after a sucessful winter and summer season when I was 9? Actually, I lie. I do know why I quit. My parents did not want to commit to the five days aweek practices that would have entailed the following year. But I came back, quite literally out of the blue, because I remembered that when I was nine I truly loved it. Many people would not enjoy swimming lap after lap after lap, kicking, diving, and doing all sorts of drills, not to mention the fact that it it is quite strenuous. But I do. I really do love it and hopefully I can catch back up to the kids my age (who just happen to have been swimming for the past six years while I was not). I’m just happy to be back- it’s nice to have swimming in my life again.
