Ever since seeing the movie Splash in the theater in 1984, I've known in my heart that I am part mermaid. I love being in the water, and I love shimmery things. That can only mean one thing, right? Definitely part mermaid.
I recently signed up for a Master's swim class. It meets three days a week from 7-8am. I almost didn't sign up because I was sure that everyone else in the class would be Olympic, but you know what? I love it! Everyone else in the class is pretty much Olympic, actually, but it doesn't matter. The coaches give us workouts and we do them. That's it. It's a great way to start the day, and you should see my arms... I knew there were muscles hiding in there!
