Publisher's Summary

Dear Swimmer,

My name is Rich Greene. I'm the author of Going the Distance: 21 Tips to Survive a 12.5-Mile Swim Around Key West. I'm a triathlete, and my favorite of the three sports is swimming! I put this book together because the very first time I did Key West swim, I had a lot of questions about what it was all about.

I first did this swim one month shy of my 50th birthday. There's nothing amazing about my age and competing in this event. What is amazing is that 6 months prior, I couldn't swim eight laps in a 25 yard pool without getting winded! With the help of my coach, Kari Duane, I was able to gain the skills necessary to successfully complete the race. I share this information with you because you might not think you could ever swim non-stop for hours. Think again!

If you are considering a long-distance swim, and especially a long-distance swim around Key West, I've written this book for you. In this audiobook, I'm going to give you 21 tips. These were some of the questions that I wanted to have answered before the race. Also included are questions that I wished I had asked that I hadn't! I hope you enjoy these tips and that you get a lot of benefit out of the pages that follow.

If you would like to contact me, please feel free to send me an email to rich@KeyWestSwimTips.com, and I will be sure to respond. Any questions at all that you have on your first race, I will be happy to help you out.
