The rest of the team started two weeks ago, but due to my vacation today was my first day. I was a little nervous about it, but more excited than anything. I have learned to like running ok, but swimming is still my passion. The coach started me off where the others had started two weeks ago. After I did the warm up, he said "I see you have skills". The majority of the practice was 50 drills. During this time I got to thinking that the coach, who is a recent college graduate, wasn't even born yet when i first started swimming. Which happens to be when i was 5 and at the pool i was currently in. Made me feel old and nostalgic at the same time.
