Treading Water.


THE BACKSTORY: Marco and I took a train and road trip this past summer to help his mom and sister move back to Portland from El Paso, TX. We took the train down to Texas because I was pregnant, then helped them drive back north. They moved all their stuff in just their two cars, Marco drove one, his sister the other. When I was a teen, I was a lifeguard and swim teacher at a community pool in Chicago, I used to swim A LOT and I’ve always loved to swim, but I don’t make regular time for getting to the pool or out to water in nature as much as I used to when I worked at a pool. When I learned I was pregnant, I switched from a jogging routine for exercise to a swimming routine, making time for that to keep active while pregnant in a way that was easier on my body. During our drive back to Portland, we stayed at a string of cheap hotels, but they all had pools, which was such a relief! After sitting in a hot car most the day, popping into a cool pool at night and just swimming around was heaven! It was also fun to help Marco work on his form, but he’s a lot more concerned with basic survival while swimming rather than refining his technique…
