sparkling water

I always love swimming but tonight’s swim was particularly special. I arrived at the pool just as the sun was setting. The water was shimmering in the golden light and freezing cold.
My first lap was a sprint and at the end of 50 meters I was warm. I only shared a lane with one other person and we never came close to each other, but the 50 meter lap pool is especially nice for sharing lanes because it’s actually difficult to catch another person with the distance between ends!
I enjoyed the stillness as the night arrived and the pool brightened with spotlights. I hurried through my 800 meters and walked home wrapped in my towel, ready for dinner.
