Swim Hard Live Happy



A new school year is different for few


Almost all kids wakE up at 7:30


Almost  all kids drAg themselves out of bed, moaning, groaning


Almost all kidS go through a day unchallenged


Almost all kids never reallY pursue


Almost all kids stay in their comfort zone


Almost all kids go through high school like this


Am I almost all kids? Nope


I’m one of the few


One of the few that wakes up at 4:30 for practice


One of the few that plunges deep into the freezing cold pool


One of the few that works the hardest on every set


One of the few that goes to school with every muscle sore


One of the few that crawls into bed that evening physically depleted


One of the few that loves it more than anything else
