  1. 6/11/16 Healthy Trenton 5k Run

    I'm not much of a runner. Swimming is more my thing. It sure was a good thing that I stuck around after the race this morning as my family won a $200 aquatic center membership to the Kennedy Aquatic Center in Trenton, MI!
  2. Back in the water!

    It feels good being back in the water. As my kids get older, it's starting to get "a little" easier to find time to swim 2-3 days a week. I enjoy focusing on the technical aspects of swimming which improves my instructional delivery when I coach my high school team.

    I'm finding that I need more rest when practicing but the quality of my swimming is still there. I look forward to seeing what the future brings in the water!

  9. My first entry!

    Just want to see if this works...

    Not in the water too much right now as I'm staying busy coaching my high school boys team. I have renewed my commitment to stroke technique this season and the results have paid off.

    Last weekend, we got our first state cuts of the season and are very close in 5 other events as well. Coaching one season has allowed me to stay focused because the season is so short.
