1. It keeps us busy and out of trouble (most of the time)
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 ourselves
5. Life long friends
6. Tapering—we feel extra thankful when taper season comes around
7. Time management skills
8. Although we could do without the tan-lines, we’re thankful for the year around tans
9. A sport that gives us dreams and ambitions
10. Pizza, we're thankful for pizza after a long swim
11. The swimmer metabolism (especially on Thanksgiving)
12. Our teammates who become family
13. It's a lifetime sport—we're thankful for the ability to pick up the sport where we left off, no matter how many years have passed
14. We're thankful for blankets, parkas and beanies (can you blame us?)
