Juliana and I spend a lot of time at the pool lately. You see, her doctor recommended water therapy for her back and so I take a water aerobics class in the same pool while she has therapy. This means we have to be at the pool by 6 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It seems early to me; yet there are lots of people already there, already swimming, when we arrive!!! (Just FYI, Juliana LOVES her therapy, even on the days when it is raining which makes the water especially cold.)
A swim team practices in the pool next to ours and I enjoy watching them train, especially when they are working on the starting blocks. Perhaps I'm drawn to that exercise because we can relate so well. In fact, it feels like we've been on the starting block for awhile...and now Ricardo is actually in the air getting ready to enter the water...the water that is his new role as Latin American Area Director.
