7×7 March 2011

This is a result of a fun photo shoot in mid-January. There were many people who walked by as we were next to chrissy field, the golden gate bridge and the warming hut store. Tom told me that one 8 year old told her dad after watching me swim, that she wants to do that! During the second shoot, a red couch came floating by and leave and re-appear. So random and funny. And after the third series of shots,  an older woman asked me how i was going to get warm? I said that I was headed into a dry sauna at the South End Rowing Club. She told me to make sure I have a big glass of brandy.

The suit that i love and wore for this article, is from a woman athlete and designer in LA, whose brand is dedicated to the athletic female.

For all of you out there who are starting to make summer and fall plans, think about…

swim in the sea with me

salt water sincerity

expand your terrain.

I am now booking group swims( 6 person max). How about a Golden Gate Bridge swim? Around Alcatraz? A round trip Alcatraz?

Weekly Open water swim classes will begin in June at the Berkeley Marina.

Clinics to get you ready and prepped for your next race or swim or vacation-shape are coming in May, stay tuned….

However, if all of this seems thrilling, but not your or your kids speed quite yet, how about joining me in the Berkeley Tennis Club’s pool to either…

Learn to swim -for babies and toddlers

Come to a stroke class, clinic or lesson to getter better and more efficient with your four strokes.

Yes, I am now working with babies and toddlers. I have been trained by Ginny Ferguson who created the Smart Fish Method.


What I really love about this comprehensive program is that little ones are being taught the same drills that Richard Quick used with his Standford swimmers and Dave Salo emphasizes with his incredible age group team, Nova Aquatics in southern California.  Truly the method is from infants to champions!
