Kicking and the Clunk Foot
I know I've written about the subject, but my swim kick is the closest thing to dismal as it gets. It's never really been an asset - I've been told it's a liability - but I was always ok with that in the past. I dismissed criticism with a million-and-one ex...

Pondering Lane Etiquette
I'm not sure what's going on lately, but either my disaster-magnet status has somehow injected its influence into lane swimming or I live in a very discourteous part of the world. I've had several angry exchanges with fellow swimmers over sharing pool lanes...

Coping - But Just Barely
Could 2017 also be the year I decide to blog more regulary? Is twice a month considered "regular"? Well, whatever - I just needed to vent. In a year of environmental, political, social, and economic uncertainty and my second year focusing on open-water swim...

Swimming to the Moon, Race Report
Number 52: not my age, but close enough! My last open-water swim "race" this year was Epic Racing's "Swim to the Moon," an event that takes place somewhere near Hell (Hell, Michigan, that is). I suspect the reason I chose this event was because I loved the ...

The Importance of Bilateral Breathing in Open Water Swimming
In the past month, I've been spending quite a bit of my pool time re-learning how to bilateral breathe. As I've written before, upon my return to regular swimming about 15 years ago, I gravitated toward breathing on my right. I just did what was natural, an...

Playing Ocean Games (a.k.a. "Finding Corey")
Post-swim with race director and living-testament to the human spirit, Corey Davis It's not often we have the opportunity to be truly inspired by a another human being. But there are miracles (there's that word again) all around us and many of us will live ...
