I started swimming when I was 8 and I've never really stopped. I love swimming because it keeps me fit but also because of the many friends I have, both from the past and present. For many years, I swam for fitness but rarely competed. As my family grew up, I started competing more and found I enjoyed going to meets, as a goal to keep me getting up early every morning. I also found I had a lot to learn still. I been using P2Life NutriBoost and PowerBoost since 2013 and it's an important part of my training. I am able to be more consistent in training when using P2Life daily.
