With Thanksgiving upon us, we're feeling extra nastolgic about the sport we love to hate. Despite all of the complaints, dreaded early mornings, and constant hunger-- we're forever thankful for swimming. Here's why;

2. We appreciate being outdoors
3. Our forever cheerleaders, our parents
4. Our coaches for believing in us even when we don't believe in ourselvesRead More
As the last of summer's seashells are washing back to sea, we're packing up our beach blankets and hanging up our surfboards. Although we're sad to see the care-free days in bikinis go, we're welcoming sweater weather with open arms. Whether it's the football, all of the pumpkin-spiced goodies, the autumn leaves, the cozy candles, or the fun new fashions after a summer in cut-offs and tanks-- there's just something so refreshing about fall.
As swimmers, we know that we don't get to hang up our swimsuits and goggles just because the summer sun is setting (do we ever get a break?).

As swimmers we choose to expose ourselves to extreme weather conditions in the hopes that all of our hard work will soon pay off. As we tread deeper into the colder seasons, our parkas and warm-ups become vital accessories to keep our bodies warm and insulated. Nobody wants to have chills prior to diving in for a 200-yard swim. For that very reason, the SwimOutlet.com Blog has selected a curated mix of cool (by that we mean hip) and functional products to help warm you up on the pool deck this winter.Read More
