Triathlon Swim Workouts

Dear Friend,

I am including a new story in the newsletter on a monthly basis- I am going to feature triathletes affiliated with Tri Swim Coach that have had success in swimming, or just in a triathlon in general.

Please send me your best “little” (or big!) success in swimming the open water, or a race where you completed your goals. I may include YOUR story in an upcoming newsletter, going out to 14000+ subscribers!

Just reply to this email with your story and I will let you know when you will get published.

Enjoy the Workout of the Month!
