I started swimming with Blue Wave Aquatics in the spring of 2014 in the beginner Adult Learn to swim classes. I quickly advanced to the tri-time classes after a few weeks. After many weeks of lessons, I decided to sign up for my first sprint triathlon and completed the Iron Girl in the summer of 2014. In the summer of 2015, I completed my second Iron Girl.   Saturday mornings are my favorite time of the week. I never realized how much I enjoyed swimming before.
My husband and I just returned from a dream vacation to Ocho Rios, Jamaica. We went on many excursions but my favorite was snorkeling. The ocean was a beautiful blue green and the water was the temperature of bath water. I jumped off the catamaran and swam off with a group of other tourists.  I could hear Wendy in my head telling me how to use the snorkel and fins. One day at Twin Lakes pool, I was the only one at class and she spent the whole hour teaching me. We swam for over an hour in a coral reef. It was one of the greatest experiences in my life.
Swimming has given me a lot of joy. I am 60 years old and I plan on swimming as long as I am able. I hope nobody lets fear keep them from enjoying the water. I am thankful for finding Blue Wave Aquatics and encourage everyone to learn to swim.
