"It's one of the most natural things for me in the world," Peirsol said of becoming a lifeguard. "I want to do this because of the respect I have for the local environment. I feel like I always had something drawing me to being a lifeguard. It's exciting for me. It really is something I wanted to do since I was a kid. It's a huge part of who I am. I've always looked up to those guys. They love what they do. How can Nike Jackets Hoodie you not dig that? I'm looking forward to this for sure."
