The Thrill of the Swim By: Adam Robert
Boom!! You dive in!
Feel the cold water rush over your body
As you stroke you breath
You get faster and faster
The wave behind you gets faster
You hear the cheer and screaming of fans
The race is almost over
You kick and stroke faster and harder
Trying to win
Then you feel the desire
The desire to win to over come the pain
You put your head down and dig
Dig deep for the energy and motivation
You grasped it, you have it
Then you do what you do best and win
If you have a lane you have a chance
Being an athlete and being on a team is the greatest avenue to learn a great deal about life and about yourself.
