Beautiful Weather in our Mountain Town!

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.

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!”
