July 16, 2020 — The 29 Confessions of a Distance Swimmer By Chandler Brandes, Swimming World College Intern “I didn’t choose the distance life. The distance life chose me.” Well, not quite.

And here we are, many years later, still staring at the bottom of the pool, anxiously waiting for the red bl ...
