"I love to see change. The rate at which the young athletes are improving is sometimes mind-boggling! Whereas my college swimmers train all year to see ever-smaller improvements, the younger RMR swimmers are literally dropping their times weekly! It is fun to be a part of the process and to help swimmers achieve their goals. I love helping athletes understand what they need to do to grow and enjoy seeing them embrace change and be rewarded as they improve in the pool."
