Iron Mike's Marathon Swims The life so shorte, the crafte so long to lerne

Wear Sunscreen

July 8, 2016 / by ironmike

You might have heard this song before. It’s based on a newspaper article written years ago by Mary Schmich, a commencement address she said she’d give if ever asked.

The piece has lots of sound advice in it:

  • Be kind to your knees; you’ll miss them when they’re gone.
  • Floss
  • Dance, even if you have nowhere to do it but your living room.

But perhaps the most appropriate advice for my recent past, and one I forgot, is:

  • Wear sunscreen

I did have my daughter put sunscreen on my back, legs and arms, but totally forgot my face.

You can see the cap line on my forehead. Google marks, too.

Can you tell which side of my face spent more time out of the water breathing?
