An avid swimmer, cyclist, Aquabiker, cross-country skier, and scuba diver, I am in the water all the time (except when skiing). Swimming (and sports, in general) is a lifesaver to me because I live with a dehabilitating disease which causes pain, fatigue, muscle loss, joint damage, and damage to connective tissues. Exercise is the way I relieve pain, reduce work stress, build muscle mass, and socialize. I compete in swimming and Aquabike at the national level and recently qualified for the World Championship Olympic distance in Abu Dhabi where I will be representing Team USA.
