Hometown: Eden Prairie, Minnesota
I have been open water swimming in Minnesota since my dad introduced me to lake racing when I was 13 years old. He brought me to the lake and as we looked out at the race coarse he said, "You have an advantage over all these other kids." "What?" I asked eagerly. "You're not scared of weeds." Maybe I am scared of weeds, I thought, but I didn't say so. During that first race, when I got bogged down in weeds, I kept telling myself, 'I'm not scared of weeds, I'm not scared of weeds....'. From then on I knew, it is all in your state of mind: preparation, determination and desire. Now over 30 years later, I am aiming at a whole new challenge.
