Like many, I made a resolution to "exercise more." I know that the intgible resolution is worthless, so I time-activated. I signed up for a swim class at CCSF. I pay the $40 (yes, insn't that ridiculous for 5 months of instruction?), suit up, show up, do what the coach tells me, and in one hour, resolution met! It's amazing the motivational transformation of 1 hour of swimming. I recommend it.
Here's a photo of me swimming the 200 breast in 2004 finals when I was on the CSM swim team (it's not what you think). I cropped the part where the swimmers from the next event are already on the starting blocks waiting for me to finish.... I have to say, however, that I did not finish last in any event that year.
