A Swimmer’s Christmas Wish

Let’s go for the big stuff right away – Peace, Health and Prosperity for All and if those three don’t bring happiness then shame on all of us. OK, now that we’ve taken care of just about all the big problems, how about some specific Christmas Wishes for Swimmers

An endless pool.

A perfect stroke.

Goggles that never fog-up.

Swim suits that never stretch out.

Chlorine that doesn’t make your skin itch and your eyes water.

Ahhh… its Christmas Eve and those “specificChristmas Wishes for Swimmers don’t seem all that important! Relax. Enjoy. We’ll be back in the pool before you know it and since 2009 is almost here, can Open Water Swimming be far away?

Open Water Swimming: that’s a whole NEW set of wishes – NO Jelly Fish, NO sharks, (yes, I still hear the music from Jaws with every Open Water Swim!), and the list goes on. But instead of all the “Negative’s” lets concentrate on the “Positive’s”. The biggest Positive -- all the really good friends I’ve made while swimming at the Huntington Y. Which brings us back to this Swimmer’s Christmas Wish: Peace, Health and Prosperity for All – as for the Swim Stuffa few extra laps couldn’t hurt. See you in the pool.
