One of the unique aspects that unites swimmers across the world is our weirdness. We are strange creatures. It takes a very weird person to enjoy doing what we do every day. What people don’t realize is that that weirdness is reflected in our swim bags. Every swimmer has a cap, goggles, extra suit, and towel in their bag, but you wouldn’t expect us to have these common weird items in there as well.
1) Heat Winner Ribbon from 1995Apparently I went a 14.85 25 Free 10 years ago…...go me? This is a momentum from much simpler days……the days when a 25 fly was hard, our coach was nice, and dryland was actually fun and games.
2) The Remains of an Unknown Snack
Since we’re always eating, we always have food in our bags. Sometimes the food doesn’t always make it to our mouths. That peanut butter crusty thing at the bottom of your swim bag…..that’s an example.
