    The 10 Best Valentine's Day Ideas For Swimmers

    As swimmers, it's hard to catch a day off. We're constantly on the go, shuttling to and from practice and traveling to swim meets. So on Valentine's Day weekend, a weekend designed to be spent with the one(s) you love-- what's a swimmer to do?

    We're suckers for a good love story, so we're sharing a handful of Valentine's ideas for the swimmer in your life. Whether you're planning a galentines day with your best girlfriends or hoping for a romantic text from your crush, these are for you; 

    1) Bring your coach a warm coffee with a note that says, "we like you a latte" (get it?)

    2) Stick a love note in their swim bag for them to find when they get to the pool

    3) After practice, take your valentine out to get a burrito (or should we say, bae-rrito)

    4) Send them a sweet text that will be waiting on their phone when they get out of practice

    5) Have a heart shaped pizza delivered to the pool (because nothing says "I love you" like pizza-- are we right?)

    6) Stop by towards the end of their practice and wait by the pool with a warm towel (talk about the warm and fuzzies)

    7) Leave a box of chocolates on the diving block infront of their lane

    8) Buy matching Valentine's Day swim caps for you and your girlfriends

    9) Recite a cheesy pick-up line, like, "you make my heart flutter kick." Or, "Are you the 400m IM, because you take my breath away."

    10) Write "reasons why I love you" on the lap counter, and for each lap number write a different thing you love about them

    Enter to win a Cupid prize pack-- a pink TYR kickboard, Amanzi Puppy Love Silicone Cap, TYR Totes Adorbs Silicone Cap and a pair of Bling2O heart-shaped goggles. To enter, tell us how you will be celebrating Valentine's Day in the comments below. All entries must be submitted by 11:59pm PT on Monday, February 15.

    I am spending my Valentine's Day at church in the morning because I need to thank God for swimming being over after yesterday. Then I will come home and clean a little because I have been doing none of that during this swim season. Afterward I will just relax and watch movies in bed and cat nap with my puppy. Nothing else seems to be as perfect as that.

    The reasons why I love swimming because it gives me the passion to face stronger swimmers even legendary Olympic swimmers like Garrett Weber-Gale, Ryan Lochte, Rowdy Gaines, Jessica Hardy, Dominik Meichtry and all others who gave it their all with honor. My dream is to be number one and do it for my family, my friends and my late relatives. It's my passion and my drive to swim and have fun. Swimming helps me get rid of the stress inside my heart. I'm in the starting line in the race towards my dream. Thanks and Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

    Valentine's Day will be celebrated by me and a few of my non-swimmer friends by going to our local burrito shop and seeing who can eat the most, the fastest... They're confident that they can beat me, but little do they know swimmers (such as myself) possess the extraordinary ability to consume upwards of three burritos in one sitting. Watch out, Chipotle!
