Not that interested in competition or travel? Then perhaps postal events are for you: you can compete in your own pool with an audience of your choosing. One great event is the Check-Off Challenge, which lasts all year.
Interested in a challenge? Try the Check-Off Challenge: complete 18 pool events and one open water swim during the course of the calendar year.
There is still plenty of time to do the Check-off Challenge! This is a non-competition postal event: you have to complete each of the 18 pool events (any course: meters or yards, short-course or long-course) and one open water swim.
