Hi Everyone,
I hope this message finds you well! I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to each one of you for making this past year of swimming an absolute blast! Joining the Masters has been a great experience for me, and I've grown to love it more and more with every week. From those early days of trying to keep up in my lane to now seeing improvements in my speed, endurance, and even in my open water times at Reef n Run, it's been quite a journey, and I couldn't have done it without the support from all of you. But what truly makes our swimming sessions special is the community you've built. Every time I dive in, I'm inspired by the strength and dedication shown by our fellow swimmers. So massive thank you to all of you for contributing to this wonderful culture and creating such an inclusive space for us all to enjoy. Wishing you all the very best this holiday season! Cheers! -R-
