Swimming in Slow Motion
Friday, April 24, 2009
I was swimming laps at my regular pace with two other swimmers in my lane. In the other lane were 4 young men I had not seen at the pool before. As I swam, I saw one after the other pass me like I was standing still or "swimming in slow motion". Shortly, they passed me again going the other direction, and I had not yet reached the wall. One was doing butterfly kick with no arms, so the waves in the pool were noticeable. After an hour, I got out, dried off, and went to the massage chair for 15 minutes. As I sat, here came the young men, all in uniforms-navy blue shorts and a polo shirt. On the back of their shirts, the writing said that they were all life guards from a nearby beach! No wonder they were so speedy! Good to know if you swim at their beach!
