Do you like to swim? Do you frequently find yourself swimming laps at the Y pool, no matter rain, shine or snow? Have you noticed a persistent chlorine smell that seems to follow you constantly? Are most of your towels and swim suits wet most of the time?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, the Y’s 100 Mile Swim Club might be for you! This exclusive club is open to all Y members who swim at least 100 miles in a calendar year. How far is 100 miles, you ask? Let’s start smaller. The competitive swimming standard for 1 mile is 1,650 yards. In our 25 yard Y pool, that equals 33 laps (50 yards), or 66 lengths (25 yards). That means 100 miles is 165,000 yards, 3300 laps or 6600 lengths.
The numbers may seem daunting, but when broken down over the course of a year, they’re not so bad; you might already be swimming 100 miles and not know it! Rounding up, it breaks down to 3,173.1 yards per week, 452.05 yards a day. Not so bad, huh?
If you think you’re up to the challenge, sign-up at the front desk today! There will be a clipboard located in the pool area for you to record your distances, and fear not – there will be a reward at the end of the year! Besides bragging rights, of course, you’ll receive a prize at an "end of journey” reception. What are you waiting for?
