Hey Team Dolfin Fans!

I’m finally back in FL after a 10 day trip to DC and Colorado Springs!  In DC, I spoke at the NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo and got lots of fans excited for Rio!  It’s always fun to go back to DC as well – after going to school there for four years, I really fell in love with the city.

From there, I flew to the OTC in Colorado Springs to do a week of altitude training.  I had a blast hanging out with the Resident Paralympic Team there, and got in some great workouts with my fellow Dolfin Pro Tucker.  Over the weekend, we raced at the Jimi Flowers Meet, held at the OTC Pool.  I rocked a bright blue Titanium and put up some pretty fast times for an in-season meet!

Now I’m back in Naples and reunited with my puppy Ollie to gear up for another solid block of training.  As I stood on the (outdoor!) pool deck in my Penguin Uglies suit this morning, it was a chilly 48 degrees!  My teammates and I are mastering the art of throwing off our parkas and immediately diving in for warm up!

Keep training hard, and get excited for what’s to come in 2016!
