The Serious Swimmer
As I prepared to gradually lower myself into arctic water, this man asked if I wanted his lane. You're a serious swimmer, he said. I was all kinds of flattered but still felt like Lois of Malcolm in the Middle when she thinks she’s a graceful dancer but, in reality, is very awkward.
Awkward or not, It felt amazing to be back in the water. I felt strong and very competent .
Chatty Kathleen was at the pool and she recently had a neurolysis procedure. She's experienced severe pain before but said nothing compares to the aftermath of having nerve endings killed...
On another note, I found out about the trash the dress ritual on the Today show. Very sad that Maria Pantazopoulous lost her life trying to trash a wedding dress in a river.
