    I started the "Swim Faster Faster" series of Swimming Tips on a whim. I've had the good fortune to train under some terrific coaches like Eddie Reese, Paul Bergen and Richard Quick and with some tremendous swimmers. Plus I continue to train with a masters group at the University of Texas Pool where UT men and women train along with several post grad Olympians and World Record Holders. I hope to continue to learn more about swimming and share what I've learned with you to help you Swim Faster Faster.

    Read them, Learn them, Try them, Apply them,
    Then let me know how it goes.
