Enough Swimming For Now

I just had my final swimming lesson last weekend, and I’m glad to be done with them.  I wasn’t particularly enthused when I started, as you may recall, but as the class became better acquainted with each other, and I felt reassured that the born-to-swim instructor of ours wouldn’t make me do anything I wasn’t […]

October Fitness Challenge: Back in the Pool
