If its the week between Christmas and New Year's, it's time for our annual Water Polo "shoot-around". We really didn't have enough players show up for a "real" match but the action was still tiring. Just ask Don who was at the Y earlier for the 6:30AM workout (3,000 plus yards), then went for a 5 mile run and then at noon, came back to the Y for an hour of water polo. I guess somebody's due for a good sleep tonight!
Thanks again to the Y and especially Bob Miller -- not only for setting it up but for showing up while still recovering from this cough/fever thing that seems to be going around. Believe me, I know how it can put you down for the count as I missed almost 10 days of swimming just a few days before Christmas. My advice, don't get it, enjoy the polo pictures and we'll see you next year for the 2015 edition of Water Polo!
Left to right: Andrew, Marko, Don and Paul. That was it for the "players" in 2014!
Yes, the picture above was a "posed" shot!

This inspirational slogan greeted us at the entrance to the Huntington YMCA Strength Training Center this morning: "The victory is not always to the swift, but to those who keep moving!"
As I don't seem to be getting any faster as the decades go by (slower, in fact, if one was to be totally honest), I take great comfort in just keeping moving! So, what are you waiting for... get up and start moving!
