Carmen had to re-certify as a lifeguard this winter, and she realized that over the past 2 years of guarding she hasn't actually done a lot of swimming.
And she figured that joining swim team would be a way to discipline herself for that timed swim in the lifeguard certification.
But it turned out to be so much more! She loved every second of it: the practises, the friendships, the early mornings, and the swim meets.
Her only regret: Not doing swim team during her other high school years!
