I have officially wrapped up my 13th year of this epic quest to swim in 1,001 different pools before I die**. With all the buzz about flattening the coronavirus curve, I was dissapointed that it's my pool curve that went in the wrong direction:
To be fair to the pandemic, I probably would not have achieved the 74 number from last year, but I would have come close. Before we were all forced into our homes, I had two more business trips, a week's vacation between Spain and London, and what should have been three pools planned for a massive swim day today, my birthday. I would have easily racked up close to 10 more pools in March alone.
So it goes.
The bigger question, though, is what kind of impact this will have on the upcoming years. With 460 pools down, I really thought that I'd be on track to clear the halfway point by the end of 2020 ... but now I don't know.
It's a good thing I have a lifetime to go!
