I am an avid swimmer, triathlete and animal lover! I have worked with animals all my life and in my 'spare' time, which is when I'm not working, I love being outside in a lake or in a pool! The last year (plus) has been difficult for everyone. In addition to all the challenges we have all faced, I discovered I had colon cancer. I had surgery and chemo and now I am cured!!! Hooray! I found that swimming was the one thing I could continue doing most days during chemo, until all the pools shut down! Luckily, there is a lake nearby that's where I was when I felt up to it! Something about swimming really made me feel at peace and gave me the courage to keep going when things seemed so hard.
