Sasquatch in Lane 2
Golden Acres Rec Center was calling--I'm officially back to swimming with the seniors again. Kill me now.
Thanks to a recovering toe, the madness of the holidays and the winter weather, the pool was not an option for me for the last couple of months. But now I have run out of excuses and the scale keeps telling me that it is time to bust out the goggles again. And so, I pulled out the gym bag, dusted off the speedo, and sprayed a fresh coat of No-Fog on the eyewear and headed over to claim a lane during Senior Swim hour.
Apparently the cold weather scares the old folks off too and a private swim lane is easily snagged. Okay, the water is 90 degrees and the cast of characters is bountiful--I guess I haven't missed much in my time off.
Gone is Snorkel guy and lady with her shoes on in the pool. New is Tatoo boy and the Sasquatch in Lane 2. Gone is my ability to pound out a mile swim in a half hour, but new is the attitude to drop some pounds.
Stay tuned for tales from the deep end........
