‪Beauty is what’s in that radiates outward. ‬It is important for women and young girls‪ ‬to be comfortable in their own skin.‪ ‬We are unique.‪ ‬We are beautiful.‪ ‬We should work to empower and encourage each other to be the best version of ourselves.‪ ‬❤️ This incident may seem trivial, but they can impact someone. No one is perfect. We all are people and we should be kind to one another. It is okay to be YOU!!

Oh come on, live a little! Open water swimming is fun.

I keep Jaws in my mind during open water to swim faster. Just thinking of a shark right behind you does wonders to your speed…

AreTheyEvenMoving?

I thought the answer would be, “because it’s so boring.”

Mr G

Its gotta be a lot less boring than following a black line for a similar distance: sighting, fighting, drafting and waves.

Happy that Chark is learning to swim. I hope he posts a progress video where he swims a 100 IM or something. As someone who watches a lot of swimming and football, I would love to see that.
