From Walden Pond to the Olympics

Alex Trautwig for The New York Times

Swimming anyone??? Swimmer [Alex Meyer] Thrives in Open Water. Such beautiful picture. It’s on the front page of the New York Times Sports, horizontally displayed. I remembered reading Fran Crippen‘s tragedy during a 10-kilometer race contested in the United Arab Emirates last year.
I haven’t hit the pool in a few months. My heart aches for it. Last time when I was out on the Long Island Sound, my first instinct was jump in [to the water]. When I saw someone water skiing, I simply drooled. It’s a torture to watch.
I got to find some time to swim!
