Life After Swimming…the name of my blog, right?
Well, it’s really hitting me that my swimming career is over. At least my college swimming career.
Since I am still living in my college town, taking classes and working on campus, and living with an undergrad still on the team, I have really been hearing about the beginning of the season.
It’s a little bittersweet that I no longer get to jump into the pool. It’s definitely a reality check and makes me feel old! At least I got my water fix from my mini geyser in the kitchen yesterday!
Though I do miss the feeling of a good workout and pushing myself to limits that I didn’t dream were possible, I don’t miss the team drama and required early mornings that came along with it as well.
At least I still am around to hang out with my teammate friends! They are actually all coming over this evening for a team movie night…and since it is at my house, I get to play pseudo-team member and tag along! 🙂
Here are a few pictures from my swimming over the years!
