A comfort swimmer's guide to easy swimming

A little background info about me. In my younger days I was a runner but quit while in my mid 30's when it was no longer fun. I began swimming in 2000 to lose a few pounds and get in shape. I did not participate in age group or high school swimming and prior to taking up swimming as a 48 year old the only previous swimming experience I had was from Red Cross lessons and Boy Scouts.

  1. Elko Triathlon

    The 10th Annual Elko Triathlon was today. And for the 10th time I did the swim. This year I also did the bike then teamed up with my brother for the run. I tied my fastest time for the swim (set last year) and was first to finish the swim in the 18+ division and was 3rd off the bike. Then let my brother take over to finish the race. We ended up first in the team catagory and were 2nd overall! Not too shabby for a couple of old guys!
