We’ve had great crowds outside this week at the JCC, with at least 19 folks crankn’ out the short course meters practice today!
A few reminders: Saturday at Biltmore Lake at 7 AM, Sunday back at the JCC, 7 AM.
This Monday-Thursday we return to the Asheville School pool. We will remain at the JCC on Fridays and Sundays into early September. Saturdays remain at lake.
Our one and only fundraiser, the 12th annual Steve Barden Memorial Swimming Meet, Saturday, September 9. Have you signed up yet? We’d love to have 100 people signed up for this event. It’s over in 2.5 hrs, we have a lunch social afterwards, and if you’d like to join us on Sunday we’ll have our lake swim followed by breakfast.

Thanks to Daniel and Alexandra for some great workouts this week! Here are all 3 coached days:
A couple workouts and a reminder that we are at JCC!
Regular practice resumes Friday with Alexandra on deck! Thanks!
Weather like this weekend is why so many of us love our mountain town!
In addition to the workouts below from Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, we had spectacular water temperature and weather for our Saturday Biltmore Lake open water swim.
A reminder, we will be at the Jewish Community Center pool all this week. We’ll ll take a vote at the end of the week to see if we want to do it for a second week.
Lastly, I look forward to seeing as many of you as are able tonight, 5 PM to 9 PM, at our house. Very casual, we have some beer, seltzer, cider, some wine, A little bit of finger food, and hoping you’ll bring something small to share or your favorite beverage! Please consider parking in the playground lot across the street, our driveway is fair game, and any other legal place on the street. Shoot me an email Lifeswim@gmail.com if you still don’t know the address.
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!”
