With Love from Nick Baker…
Dear PEAK Swimmers,
I want you to know that I love you all!
My comment may surprise those who barely know me, but allow me to explain.
I love you for your unwavering commitment, discipline, and steadfast dedication.
I love you for your endless energy.
I love you for your daily self-sacrifice.
I love you for your unlimited enthusiasm.
I love you for your never-surrender perseverance and grit.
I love you for your relentless work ethic.
I love you for the many hardships you endure.
I love you for your extreme mental toughness and lion-like courage.
I love you for your burning passion and commitment to excellence.
I love you for your high hopes and big dreams.
Now is not the time to doubt yourself or change your goals – you must stand firm.
Now is the time to charge ahead.
You’re a swimmer, you’ve trained for this moment, and you’re more than ready and able to conquer it!
Even though the pool is closed, keep your swimming alive and well.
You now have time to stretch.
You now have time for dry-land.
You now have time to meditate and visualize.
You now have time to rest.
You now have the time to dream of the positive future that lies ahead once these challenging times pass – and they will!
Take advantage of this moment and take good care of yourself.
You’ll be a stronger and wiser person (and swimmer) for it.
