Fun Team Fact? I think what is special about our team is that we all get along and enjoy each other no matter the age or ability. Outside of swimming, we have socials once a quarter, bike ride together and many go to Starbucks after practice to talk. Over the years, we have had folks on the team compete in Ironman events (including Kona), Boston Marathon and World Triathlon Championships. So we have a very diverse group. We have a What’s App group of about 20 that converse throughout the day, even for our swimmers who are not in town. The best of all is that we all go to Nationals together to have fun.... And swim.
