The first 365 days
The idea and a great wish written on a piece of paper. There is worry and cautiousness in the head. Uncertainty and expectations in the air. Love in the water. And then, one day it «rose to the surface», and came into light of day. Exactly 365 days ago, the Swimming Dad blog officially «set sail». I couldn’t even imagine what the water I «jumped into» then could bring along. It was a moment of magic, full of uncertainty about what to expect on the other side.
It’s been a year already. When I was starting this story, I wanted to motivate you to start swimming, to relax, to overcome your fears, to start loving water in a different way and enjoy it on your own, but also with your children, family, just as I do with mine!
Today, when I look back at all the kilometres we have swum together, underwater flip turns we have mastered, with a great underwater kick, but also with the first baby dip and bubbles, I know that with your support I have partially made it. Indeed, there have been challenges, since growing up itself, is not easy. I’m also aware of the fact that there are a lot of strokes yet to be made in the seawater and freshwater in order to master the swimming style.
This is why, now standing in my starting position, I’m fully ready for new jumps.
For me, swimming is like writing, or reading, an integral part of any lifestyle.
Thank you again for all your support, I’ll be waiting for you in the pool.
