SMART Coaching: Specialized Movement and Race Training. One of the most enticing things about endurance sports is that they are accessible to everyone. Anyone can train themselves to run in a race, participate in a triathlon, or ride a bike. With training on your own comes room for error. A lot of room for error.
I grew up in a small, rural town in upstate New York. For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with the water (which come to think of it, is now amusing seeing as how I live in a desert). I began competitive swimming in elementary school. I loved swimming. I loved going to practice. Swimming gave me confidence and instilled the greatest sense of discipline and purpose. I swam competitively throughout high school and college until an injury forced me to stop.
Swimming had been my constant; it had been my outlet. I am so immensely grateful for the sport and all it gave to me.
