Swimming Keeps My Life Afloat

From triathlons to marathon swims to ice swims, every time I’m in the water I learn something about myself and the unlimited potential within us both physically and mentally. 

The complete blog post is at TriThrift.com – their mission to help reduce common barriers for anyone who wishes to particiapate in the world of endurance sports resonates so deeply with why I became a coach. I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to share my story and help encourage new endurance athletes.

I could NEVER do that!

Henry Ford said “If you say you can or your can’t you’re right.”

As a guest on the I Could Never Do That podcast, I had the opportunity to share my story about my epic ice swim along with some REAL talk about diet culture, fueling for endurance sports and my journey as an athlete in a larger body.

I even share why and how I ditched my wetsuit to swim outside all year long in the Boston area.

Would you do this?

Have you ever considered doing a polar plunge – running into the winter ocean with nothing but a swimsuit? I remember a time when I thought that was the craziest thing you could do in the water. I’ve been a swimmer my entire life and I love the open water, but never considered jumping into freezing cold water. Well, you know what they say…never say never.
