As a lifelong swimmer, when I get a whiff of chlorine, I get excited. But when I saw hundreds of kids swimming in every lane at D.C.'s Takoma Aquatic Center on President's Day weekend, I was thrilled.
The joint was jumping. Lane after lane was full of swimmers racing and practicing; kids'…Continue

Loving the job and the chaos so far. More…Continue
