Hello all! And welcome to Life After Swimming!
My name is Nikki. I am a music-obsessed, family-loving, mid-twenties blogger with a masters degree in special education. Though I am currently subbing my way to a full-time position, I cannot wait to work in the field I am so passionate about!
I started blogging in July of 2011, and since then, life has taken a turn for the better. I began blogging as a way to hold myself accountable for my lifestyle. I was a competitive swimmer from the age of 7 until I graduated from college, and afterward, I lost the drive to be an athlete. Going from Division II swimming to laziness was not a good transition. Through blogging, I’ve found that passion again. I found triathlons, and I am so happy that I did! I also joined a masters swim team as well which helped me remember why I loved swimming.
Since blogging, I’ve also grown as a person. I’ve completed my schooling. I’ve gotten engaged. Blogging has also introduced me to so many amazing people who think just like me!
Follow me on my journey as I plan a wedding, train for my first half Ironman, and continue my pursuit for a fulfilling life.
I hope you enjoy Life After Swimming! If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
