More about me:
I learned how to swim at a young age because I had to do everything my big brother did. I am one of the drivers for the invention of 'adult swim' .

Now, I swim for fitness and pleasure. A few years ago, I learned how to do Total Immersion swimming which completely changed the experience for me. My stroke is effortless now. That combined with my SwimP3 player make it hard for me to get out of the pool again.

Also, I've been certified in scuba since 1978 when they made you breathe out of the tank like James Bond. I love being underwater and everyone always asks me why I don't have a tan when I come back from the Caribbean.

Why don't you have a Tan when you come back from the Caribbean? Stop wearing a wetsuit or "Skins" in warm water and let the Sun bake you golden.
