The Christiansburg Aquatic Center’s first year
Trejbal is a member of The Roanoke Times editorial board. He is based in the New River Valley.
Shortly after the Christiansburg Aquatic Center opened a year ago, I bought an annual membership. I had grand visions of swimming laps and working out in the cardio room.
For a while, I followed through. I took a swim fitness class and showed up at the cardio room on a regular basis.
Then the luster faded. I have not been in the water in months, and my time on the bike has dropped precipitously.
It is time to renew my membership, and I have been thinking hard about whether it makes sense. I probably attended enough days last year to justify it, but there are a few nagging annoyances.
