Doubled My Goal
August 12, 2016

Wow!  You guys rock!  This last push took me to double my goal.  It also had the wonderful side effect of taking me past my other two triathlon  See more

THE STORY:

This is to support the wonderful Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay. The charity event will consist of a 2 mile swim along the coast of Grand Traverse Bay with all proceeds going to this non-profit organization who is devoted to keeping our local watershed clean and happy. For me, this will be a new personal record for me and swimming. A little over a year ago I could not swim more than 25 yards in the pool; I could swim enough to have fun, but nothing of any distance. With help from taking adult swim lessons at the YMCA, and swim training lessons with TriAgain Fitness, I've now been able to complete 2 triathlons. The swim distance in a triathlon is about 1/2 mile long (for my distance, that is) so cranking that up to 2 miles will be a wonder accomplishment for me. Please help out with a donation to a wonderful charity and for an opportunity for me to do a 2-miler. "Just keep swimming!"
