I grew up swimming, but took a 26-year break before finding open water swimming in December 2019. I love the sport (again), love the freedom of it. I find it invigorating and challenging. I love the social nature combined with the solitude. I hadn't swum for 26 years, and now I feel with great confidence that I've found my passion, my people, my sport. And I want to get better, go further, and swim in new places.
I swim often in the chilly Puget Sound, mostly wetsuit-clad. I've swum Around Coronado, the Border Buster in Vermont, and I have two big swims on the books for next summer!
