A Giant Thank You from Coach Alexandra…!

Alexandra’s words of thanks to Asheville Masters, “Can you send out a message to everyone telling them that I am so thankful for financial and emotional support throughout this whole fire situation and that I super really appreciate everyone who donated any amount to the reconstruction of my apartment/wardrobe.  The masters community is something else, man, y’all are so great!”

PaRtY. Weekend. Swim Records.

Happy weekend swimmers!

Remember, Sunday, July 30, we’ll have  a masters party from 5 PM to 9 PM at Coach Andrew’s house. You’ll have to come to work out or email me at Lifeswim@gmail.com for address.  If you would like to bring something small to share, please do. And of course, your favorite beverage, essentially, we are providing the venue. Ha ha ha.

Biltmore Lake open water swim Saturday  morning.  Please sign in AND out and sign the Biltmore Lake waiver if you’ve not done so yet. That just needs to be signed once in the summer. But the sign in/out is every time we swim at the lake. Thank you.

We hope everyone enjoyed the extra outdoor morning at the JCC today. All Fridays for the rest of the summer and beyond Labor Day will be there.  We also have a two week period beginning Monday, July 31 when we’ll ll be at the JCC  every day except Saturday!

Here are Daniel and Alexandra’s workouts from this past Wednesday and this morning: IMG_5377IMG_5383

Saturday evening, after just moving in, Coach Alexandra had her apartment burn! If you’d like to make a donation to help her out with clothing and furniture expenses, please bring it and give to one of the Jeffs or Craik at any workout this week.

Earlier that day we had a gorgeous morning for our Saturday lake swim this past weekend. We welcomed a few visitors, Jenn from Charlotte, Miles from California, Hannah the local, as well as a few regulars. IMG_5328IMG_5329IMG_5332Californian Miles, Locals Hannah & Andrew.

Friday @ JCC!

This Friday, Asheville School Pool will be closed. We will swim our normal coached practice with Alexandra at the Jewish Community Center, regular time of 5:45am.

Please remember at the JCC there are only three small bathrooms with correspondingly small showers, not likely enough to accommodate our entire group heading off to work. If you are able to shower at home, and you still want to swim, that might be your best option.

This Saturday will be at Biltmore Lake and Sunday at the JCC, both days at 7am.

For now, Andrew will be coaching on Mondays, Daniel will do Wednesdays and Alexandra will coach Fridays through September 8. We are glad to offer the variety available to y’all!

Here is Daniel’s workout from this morning: IMG_1712.JPG

Reminders!

Each Tue-Wed-Thu all summer we need to either be OUT of pool at 7am, or  consolidating the few remaining swimmers into one or two lanes  to accommodate the club team that begins at 7 AM.   Please move to the last two lanes closer to the windows for the remaining 15 minutes, on your own, without having the club coach have to ask us.  We really should not linger on these mornings. Thanks!

If you pay through six months dues are due.  You can either use PayPal or bring a check made out to Asheville Masters Swimming. See PayPal info on home page of website for details.

If you have swimming equipment needs, please consider using our swim outlet access seen here  for many of your purchases: IMG_5299.JPG
