20% Of The Laps Completed. A New Year’s Update.

Happy New Year everyone!! I finished off 2017 by hitting the 2,000 lap milestone mid December.  I am currently sitting at 2,111 laps, and it feels incredible.  Despite the fatigue I was experiencing after the North York Gators Pentathlon, I was still able to enjoy the water at a significantly slower pace.  I wasn’t able…

In this meet each swimmer…

At dryland last Sunday, we did a circuit with some pretty neat…

1,000 Laps of Love Milestone!!

What a wonderful day for Laps of Love, I hit the 1,000 lap milestone this morning! I can’t even begin to share the excitement and happiness I feel inside.  When I first started this fundraiser, I was told that the laps goal was so ambitious, it maybe too much for me to do.  None the…
