Try Something New!

Something New

By Coach Aubree Gustafson

Summer is finally here and it’s a great time to try something new. Maybe you’ve always wanted to try a triathlon, there are many beginner triathlons held all summer long. Maybe this is the year for you to compete in as many open water swims in the Oregon Open Water Series as you can. Maybe instead of competing in a specific event this summer, you are giving back by volunteering your time with a new organization, or giving of yourself by becoming a first time blood donor. Instead of an article this month, I’d like to ask you the reader, what are you going to try this summer? Others might like to try it too. Please share your events and ideas by emailing me at, and I will highlight your comments in this summers’ Fit to Swim articles. Thanks in advance for your participation!

**It’s that time again! The USMS 5K/10K ePostal National Championships, to be completed in a 50 meter pool between May 15th and September 15th of this year, are on! Grab yourself a lane and lap counter and test your stamina with one of these longer Postal swims. Online event registration and information can be found at under the “Events and Results” tab, below “Open Water & ePostals”, select “National Championships”. Good luck!!**
