My focus for the past 30+ years has been triathlon, with 28 Ironman distance races on my resume. Over the past couple of years I've moved from the typical triathlete's attitude about swimming (just do it) to enjoying it. In 2019 I had a swim-cation in the Dalmation Coast of Croatia and this year I've started a project to swim to or from all the publicly accessible spots on Lake Washington (documented at 2021 was a solid racing year (All AG firsts) and I age up in 2022!
