A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to try out colette’s new summer speedo swim club at the beautiful molitor. A little swim history on me: I am pretty much afraid of water. I swim, I bob, I jig… but come too close or ask me to go underwater and I will bite you.


When I was a kid about 6 years old, my little brother pushed me in the pool without my floaties and I almost drowned… I have never quite gotten over my fear even though I in fact DO know how to swim. This day we gathered with friends of Colette and learned different swimming techniques in a fun but serious atmosphere. Our Speedo Swim Coach did a very good job at explaining the right techniques.

Like in any sports SOME OF US (not me-haha) were more skilled than others. It is my dream and goal one day to go to Bali or Corsica and Paddle board on a surfboard so for me it is important to get over my fear of the water and to become a stronger swimmer. There’s something really cool about (slowly) pushing yourself past your uncomfortable fears. All in all it was a really fun day and a good workout!
