Indoor Pool Community

Spending the past several weeks running in the indoor pool at our lovely FAC I have had the pleasure of getting to know a whole different type of athelte. Most of the folks who swim the 23 and change yard pool are over the age of 55. The average length of time spent in the pool per swim is 25 minutes. Hey, I have to occupy my mind in some way during these "run" sessions :)Some are new to swimming and not quite sure what lurks in the outdoor pool and craziness of the masters swimming scene. It is most definitely a "mellow" atmosphere unless Verne Scott (father of "The Man") has his Platinum Rockers in there making waves. They are a group of athletes 70 plus years young. The lone woman of the group is just learning to swim at the spry age of 78 and one gentleman just learned to do a flip turn!

NHL action tonight as the Wings look to go up 3-0 on the Flames...Go Wings!

Keep it smooth...
