This past weekend, two brave TriGirls finished the Chesapeake Bay 4.4 Mile Swim. My dear friend Heidi had finished the 4.4 mile swim a few years ago, and I remember from her experience that it was a very difficult, lonely, and potentially dangerous undertaking.
- Deanna was one of the 9 girls that had finished IMFL just last November, and I watched her all last year work diligently on her training. She worked especially hard on her swimming, which I think she felt was her weakest discipline, and that work continued this year to great success.
- Jonah has in my opinion always been a strong swimmer, but with two young children at home dedicating the time to this type of training is a big sacrifice. She was always there both for master's practices and TriGirl swims, plugging away in the "grind it out" lane.
I am honored to train and race with these women--who tackle such tough races with incredible grace and courage. Congratulations!
