A Message from the Chair- Aaron Norton

By Aaron Norton

Hello everyone who loves to swim and loves those who love to swim. I found something the other day on social media that I found very amusing. It says: There are 4 types of Masters Swimmers: 1. I’m here to swim, not socialize. 2. I’m here to socialize, not swim. 3. I’m here so I can eat whatever I want. 4. Wait, what? Haha, that made me laugh. I think I would add a 5th one that says “I am here because swimming with other masters swimmers makes me happy.” It is so true. I look forward to the challenges that swimming offers me, but also to the wonderful friendships and connections I make as well. I am so looking forward to the summer with the weather getting warmer comes open water swimming! If you have never tried it I would invite you to jump in feet first. We will be having some open water swim practices this summer that will be split between Deer Creek and Pineview Reservoirs (more info to come soon). Both have great areas to swim. I invite all to put on some sunscreen and come on in to the open water. But also, never leave the pool either. The beginning of this month was the USMS Try Masters Swimming week and at our pool we had 6 new people show up. It was great to see their reactions to how much fun we have as a group. I hope you all saw similar things. And if you are new and reading this newsletter for the first time, then WELCOME!!! Stay wet and stay smiling. Aaron
