I went out and bought a new workout/training/”aquatic fitness” (if you will) swimsuit last night. And a first ever purchase: a swim cap! I’m so excited about it. Will I look like a dude will my hair plastered back and my eyeballs buggin’ out? Probably. But will I feel totally fly in the water? Heck yes. Better watch out Phelps.
After yesterday’s post, I was told about this swim shop in town called High Point Swim (thanks Pearl and Will!), so I went there after work instead of Sports Authority where I was originally planning on going. The lady working was really friendly and helpful, and she helped me pick out a swimsuit that actually fits properly. The brand is called Dolphin Uglies, and well, it’s not exactly the most conservative colored suit around. But it was originally $75, on sale for $40 with higher polyester content (more polyester = your suit will last longer) than the same priced Nike and Speedo ones. Who doesn’t love a good deal?
As much as it’s kiiiiiind of ridiculously 80s-looking, I also sort of love it.
