Off-Day ActivityUsually still active on off days, but with my family (canoeing, hiking, biking, etc).

I'm a 40 (soon to be 41) year old husband and father of two. I had been a runner and occasional cyclist only up until July of 2018, when I suffered a grade 3 sprain of my ankle. After a few years of being asked to start swimming and do some triathlons (and avoiding it at all cost lol) I was out of excuses. I could swim prior to "not die", but had never swam a lap in my life (let alone open water). I hopped in and it was the hardest thing I had ever done... It sucked, but I pushed through and in a year I went from 2:00/100 yd on average to 1:30/100 yd, and at the same time fell in love with swimming (and triathlon)
