​​Help from friends and family

Its not possible to do these types of swims alone.  

Im forever grateful to:
// Family and friends: Give me constant encouragement

and support and get me through the tough times.
// Training partners: Push me, motivate me and make each workout fun.
// Crew support: Watch over me, feed me, make me laugh and rescue me if needed. 
// Coaches: Focus me on the right things and technique.  Coaching is an art and science and I rely on these experts.
