Inspirational Writing on Swim Caps: Make your swim a bit more personal and meaningful

on

1044942_541254962602362_1692754068_nOne of my favorite parts of participating in Swim Across America events is writing on the swim caps in memory of those affected by cancer.

This tradition started over a decade ago at the SAA Long Island sound swim, when I would write the name of my grandfather who died of cancer and other inspirational quotes. My family and I have done it every year since at SAA events — and decided to bring the tradition to the North Jersey pool swim. Participants have written everything from the name of loved ones to inspirational quotes to other symbols on their caps.

The participants at the SAA North Jersey event loved writing on the caps for the event — it brought an added personal touch to their lap swimming.

Have you ever tried something similar to this at a triathlon? At a swimming event? Let us know!

Tri Hard,

Caity
