In Open Water Swimming, it's all about the REACH! Reach far...and GLIDE Far!

At the MRA Multisport Swim in Sutton, MA (July 26, 2014)

Spinning your legs makes you faster 
when you run or ride a bike.

But spinning your arms doesn't
make you faster in the water!

A good swimmer looks almost lazy in the water.

Reaching long and low for the far shore.
Pulling back slowly...
...and then GLIDING through the still water.

It's a rhythm that some are born with,
 and some never master.

Long, slow, and eternal as the waves themselves.

Reach.  
Farther!  
Reach. 

Pull.
and glide.

This swimmer came alongside me 
as we swam in Lake Singletary in Sutton, MA.

  (Not a race: this was a noncompetitive swim
organized by the MRA Multisport Tri Club.)

I took his picture and we both continued our swim.

Reach.
Pull.
Glide.

See you in the open water!
