Women Swimmin' for Hospicare

This was Gail's second Women Swimmin' since she got to be such an amazing swimmer.  After she took some swimming classes at Cornell she started swimming laps before work and got noticed by a coach there, Robin (top picture), who encouraged her to join a group he creates workouts for.  Most of her pod was made up of swimmers from this group, and while it's not a race, they swam their regular pace and passed many, many pods.  I was a guide for their group but stayed with one of the women who separated a bit from the others so only got to see Gail on the dock and at the very beginning of her swim.  No need to zoom in on that arm to see the muscle definition.  The bottom photo is Gail and Gabi who both celebrated their 50th birthdays this spring by swimming 5000 meters.  If you don't feel like doing the math, that's over three miles.
