I’ve been swimming since my older brothers taught me before I had memory... or maybe I blocked it out?

I learned very quickly: they threw me in the middle of our pool, and I kicked and gulped and thrashed until I reached the side. Then they threw me in again. And again. They must have been cheering me on, because I didn’t tattle on them.

Summers at the Jersey Shore, hours daily in the Atlantic. We moved to the suburbs and joined a swim club, taking formal lessons and competing. We moved to the country and swam in ponds, went boating on and swam in the Chesapeake Bay.

College was more competing, then laps for exercise. My dream house would have some type of deep pool to use for physical therapy.

Yes - learned how to swim when I was four and lived in Oklahoma, then whereever we lived after that, my mom put me in regular swim lessons at the public pools.
