Swimming, Swimming, In a Swimming Hell... I Mean Pool

I nearly died taking the swim test.

No, really.

I made it 3/4 of the way through the swim test, when I couldn't go any further. My legs were tired, and I simply could not breathe. What condition does Kelsey have that would incapacitate her in a pool? Why, exercise-induced asthma, of course! Go me! Okay, not so much.

Fortunately, the people at the pool are really really really nice and let me retake it after taking a few puffs on my inhaler and resting for a few moments... I barely passed the second time, and now I don't have to take a swim class! Yea! Afterward, I was a little (okay, a lot) shaky, and I think I'm a little dehydrated now...

Time to go get some Vitamin Water.
