I swim, therefore I am

Frank D Totten

I swim at Florida Gulf Coast University, (FGCU) Aquatic Center and sometimes/or as necessary at the Fort Myers Aquatic Center, FMAC. One of the best locations for OWS in SWFL is at Vanderbilt Beach, Naples, FL with the SWFL Open Water Swimming Group.
When the occasional circumstances require being close to home, I can do a dip and kick at the Catalina lsle Community HOA Pool. More about me...

    Comments:
    • Set 1 - Swam all strokes smooth building each 50.
    • Set 2 - Some old fashioned pulling, and it certainly gave my shoulders a workout.
    • Set 3 - This how I would like to swim without the fins! But swimming with fins does make it fun.
