I first met Sarah one year ago. I knew nothing about her at the time, other than she lived close by and knew about Open Water Swimming…. Not long after our meeting, I scrapped plans for Key West, opting for colder waters and a much bigger challenge. She clearly believed in me so, I asked her to coach me, to make me “marathon swimmer tough” even though I had no idea what that actually meant…
One year in and many months of work ahead, I am so thankful for your wisdom, guidance, encouragement, and the time you have selflessly given.

Despite pools being closed for 3 months, I have managed to get stronger during the mere 3x/week sessions at the lake (and the watch showed it) with Sarah. Today was my first pool swim since March 15. All of the miles, the freezing drives home, the wind and waves, Sarah had me swim paid off. I’m feeling good about hitting my big swim goal for the year. So much love for Sarah!

Sarah has helped me with every one of my big swims in a way I am having trouble quantifying. I think the biggest thing is the strength she has seems to transfer to anyone she is helping. There is never a question of “why are you doing this”, or “this seems crazy”. Instead it is, “how can we get this done and how can I help you?” From swimming together, to planning, to finding a cold lake when in is 90 outside in July, she has always been willing to help… This sums up who she is as a person and I have no doubts if she is your coach she will help you get any swim done you want. ❤️
