Swimming w/Friends is Fun ... Sharing lanes is more fun that you think!

Hi swimmers,

Some of you are swimming, some are not. This email is for both of you.
Those that have gotten out of the habit ... come back. You know you felt better when you swam ... with us ... muscles stretched out, pushed yourself with a workout beside friends (more than when you swim alone), you're really clean after workout. OK ... so you got a little tired, but you slept better (either at work :-))) or at night at home :-))) ) ... and you got used to it and you weren't tired, you just slept better, felt better.
