I live on South Whidbey Island and swim year round in the salt water with my fellow Whidbey Open Water Swimmers (WOWS). I am the safety director for Whidbey Adventure Swim event. I was a competitive runner who came to swimming 13 years ago through triathlons. I no longer can run due to 3 total hip replacement surgeries (long story) so swimming has been a lifesaver. I prefer open water swimming to the pool any day. It’s like the swim equivalent of trail running. I am a Physical Therapist and work as a Teaching Associate at the University of Washington. Blue Seventy gear is truly the best!
