I learned to swim in open water when I was 2. I was a natural swimmer and from the very start felt most comfortable in the water. I started racing when I was 8 and swam all through high school. It wasn't until my 30's that I discovered open water swimming in the way that I know it now. What started at that time as a mile here and there has developed into chasing more and more miles. I just completed my first 10k race and am looking forward to increasing the distance and the challenges. When I am not swimming I am a preschool teacher and a mom.
