Swimming From Home Talk Show: Michael Chadwick on Finding the Positives

We are all trying to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic as best we can. Staying at home and not socializing is not an easy task for anyone, and keeping a swimmer out of the pool is equally antagonizing.

That could mean taking walks with his wife, reflecting on where swimming fits into his life, or even looking to what his next step might be after swimming.
