About Gretchen

I'm a New Orleans native who grew up splashing around the bayous of South Louisiana. I did year-round age group swimming until high school and loved to compete in the IM. Now I live in Austin, Texas, where I am a social worker and a member of Longhorn Aquatics master swim team. I hate to be far away from the water, so I try to swim five times a week. Since I'm happiest when I'm outside, open water swimming suits me well. I also enjoy swimming in Austin's famous spring fed pool--Barton Springs. With its wildlife, irregular shape, length and depth, this watering hole feels more like open water than a pool. I like to mix up my fitness regimen by running between 12 and 18 miles a week. On top of that, I bike to work because I love to feel the wind on my face. I live for fitness and the great outdoors but swimming is my first love.
