Swimming Myths Debunked
Swimming and nutrition myths, and what are your race plans next year?
Good morning everyone,
A smaller edition today as I spent most of yesterday relaxing with family. There wasn’t even any swimming, biking, or running! Unless you count a trip to the dog beach as swimming 😆🐕
I hope you’re all enjoying the holiday season with family and friends.
Thanks for being here,
-Matt Sharpe, newsletter editor
