A Denver area triathlete enjoying every day of swim bike run. Mom to Annie, wife to Troy, and guide to a few brave athletes, I'm always in search of the next adventure.

    Sonja – I can totally relate to this post because Andrew just learned to swim and it has been a neat experience for me as well.

    Today he swam the length of our neighborhood pool (25 yards) several times! This is a HUGE improvement since Memorial Day weekend, when we think the light bulb went off and he figured out the whole swimming thing.

    Go get’em, Annie!

    Awwwe, just love the underwater pics! I wonder who someone might take after!

  9. Aw…yeah for Annie! How exciting for her! I cannot wait until my boys get to that point too! :)

  10. Sooooo cool. Watching your kiddo swim is flat out AMAZING. My daughter is now on swim team and I am constantly blown away watching her. I’m pretty sure at 7 she can already kick my ass at 2 different strokes! 😉

    That is cool. Even just watching my little 5 month old nephew get bigger and bigger is amazing to me.

    Every time you post pictures of Annie I think of that “Boys like me because I’m pretty!” comment and laugh a little to myself. That girl is too funny.

    My little girl Peyton is the same way. She just turned for, but screams and cries anytime we try to get her to swim. I hated swimming when I was a kid and still have a phobia of the indoor pool in Tehachapi. Even the smell freaks me out. I was thinking the same thing that it may be genetic? My little boy is one, and a lot like his dad. We took him to the pool and he is fearless. I was thinking the same thing with Peyton we just need to submerge into swimming as much as we can. I am glad it worked with Annie…it gives me hope.
