Biscuit Headers!

After a steady diet of faster pace sprints today, several swimmers headed to West Asheville for a calorie intake session:)  Recently, Fridays have been great for attendance, with 19 in the water for workout this morning! We’d love to have a few more of those capable bodies join us on Sunday, 7a-9a…See you then!
