There is nothing like a good pool party…especially in your speedo or after a healthy swim practice.
This year I celebrated a couple times poolside.
The first, was a post English Channel celebration on the deck with the MIT gang. My friend, Carmen said that he would host a cupcake and francia corta (Italian sparkling wine) pool party if my channel swim was a success. That was a challenge that couldn’t go unanswered!
We had an abbreviated Coach Bill workout and got out early to celebrate. We tried to be discrete however I am sure the lifeguards turned a blind eye to our shenanigans.
A great time was had by all and we all wondered why we couldn’t have sparkling wine at 7:15am more often!The next party was yesterday post Saturday practice for the annual Holiday Party. The mimosas and treats were a just reward for another tough Coach Jen session.
The celebration was in recognition of Jen’s dedication to the team her creative sets and a nod to the holidays. This party found ourselves in our street clothes a welcome change and a bit odd at the same time to be sans speedos with my lane mates.
In 2018, I am looking forward to more pool parties with my swimming friends with or without speedos on! 😜
