I didn't even know I wanted to

Friday, June 14, 2013

Would you believe after swimming since Jan 2, 1013, I finally swam a mile today at lunch. I was swimming 3/4 a mile this week and the person who owns the pool says "if you swim a mile you'll earn a fish". Sounds kinda corny, but it was a simple challenge and today I swam a mile and earned my fish. Seems so childish to be rewarded with a paper fish with my name on it, but who cares, it's important to me! I wanted to share my success with my friends at SP, because I know no one judges, even the small victories. emoticon
