8. Swim 1200 m

Completed September 16, 1998 @ CUC Pool Lacombe, AB

It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, but I was tired at the end. I began swimming after an abrupt decision during band practice. I turned to Justin, another trombonist, and said “lets go swimming tomorrow morning.” We ended up showing up alternately on different days all week. The motivation in the beginning was not to let the other down. We ended up swimming together on the rare occasion, but we both continued to keep swimming on our agenda.
The 1200 M came by doubling my current goal when I made the list that spring. 600 M are required for a lifeguard and they must be done in under 14 minutes. Each lap at the CUC pool is 50 M.

Sorry, no pictures.
