We have a good crew of 7-8 swimmers at a local pool that get up rather early to swim 3-4 mornings per week. Roughly half are Seattle Swim veterans of our team including one of the founders of the event. The rest we plan to recruit this year, even if they don’t yet know it.
Here was the view of the sunrise over the Cascades after our workout this morning. Kinda made me feel like writing a post.
I was never a competitive swimmer, but since being recruited for my first Seattle Swim three years back, I have been slowly sucked into really enjoying the training and health benefits year-round. I really look forward to seeing folks in the morning, getting in a great workout, and having a clear head for the day. I have become a lot better swimmer and in better shape generally in the process. Much of this is thanks to Seattle Swim.
Thanks for the commitment, all you swimmers out there. I know it’s February, but start thinking about scaring up a team or registering individually for 2012. Sure it’s winter, but we’ll see you in the water.
