On the twelfth day of Christmas, my coach sent to me…

Twelve Tubs of Maxim,

Eleven Pairs of Board Shorts,

Ten Loads of Lanolin,

Nine Tubes of Biodegradable Sunscreen,

Eight Sets of Polarized Goggles,

Seven Days at the Cork Distance Week,

Six Boxes of Foggle Towelettes,

Five pairs of Agility Paddles,

Four Years of the Open Water Swimming Almanac,

Three Custom Swimsuits,

Two Feeding Sticks with dual-cup containers,

And a Go-Pro in a Oru Kayak.
