NYC Parks and Recreation Lap Swim Contest

August 26th, 2016 Posted in Uncategorized

We had the party to celebrate NYC Parks and Recreation’s Lap Swim program this week. As usual, there was a mix-up about who was swimming in the relay race. It happens every year. I was supposed to swim, but they cancelled the heat for my division. I think it was to give the other people a chance to win (kidding.)

This is the Tony D’Apolito team (my pool) taking off. Following that is a picture of my medal. We got medals this year instead of trophies, which they draped around our necks while we stood on a podium, just like the Olympics. I got the equivalent of a bronze medal. Woohoo!!

As always, thank you NYC Parks and Recreation for a wonderful program, and for maintaining these pools so well every year. I love being able to swim. I should say, being able to afford to swim! It’s a fantastic gift, I always feel happy after swimming, and I am extremely grateful.
