Fat Man back in the Pool
Having your cardiologist ask to be named as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy is pretty good motivator to get back in the water.
I swam from age 8 -19 AAU & College. Gained weight and then started swimming again, 25-35 Masters. A couple of moves and did not find the right team, so back to sloth and weight gain. Drive a desk and volunteer a lot with the Boy Scouts. Gained enough weight to be restricted on high adventure activities so I started back into the exercising.
I have had a couple of starts & stops along the way, with breaks for knee surgery and a shoulder injury. But now at 50 I am back in the water (since 7/2/08), working with a coach, an orthopedic surgeon, and a physical therapist.
This is a record of where it is going. Thanks for reading. Don
