Sometimes, life gives you lemons. And sometimes, when you are really lucky, life gives you best friends.
This group of best friends get together almost every single day, and have for over 4 years. They swim together, they run together, and they do life together. They celebrate and they mourn together. It truly is something to experience in person. Although they are from completely different walks of life, they are bound by something greater….the call of the ocean. They come with all different capability levels, and yet they work together. They compete and they encourage one another. And at the end of the day, (or end of their workout) they come together and enjoy a meal. It doesn’t have to be fancy, it can be homemade oatmeal and coffee on the beach, or it could be a 3 course meal made from scratch, either way they all enjoy to celebrate one another and have a lot of laughs along the way.
One thing I know for sure, this group of friends are some of the most fun people I have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. From a session out on the west side of Oahu, to the dawn swimming session at Ala Moana Beach Park, they were absolutely adorable. I was even the lucky beneficiary of some home grown avocados, vanilla beans and star fruit fresh from their own gardens. If only I was brave enough to swim with them….who knows, maybe one day!
