I couldn't have done it without John's help and all the great people in Milky Way Masters. THANK YOU!

When I first joined Milky Way Masters, my swimming ability was somewhere in the beginner category.  I have always been able to swim, just not efficiently.  I first met John Dankert at a triathlon course for beginners at the MAC in Cedar Rapids.  This course helped significantly, but he told me if I wanted to be really good, I should check out MWM.  After two months of consistent practice and John's help, there was a night and day difference.  I went from being unsure if I would make it to the other end of the pool, to "let's see if I can swim two miles in today's practice."  I improved my drill work, swimming technique, and overall time.  While all of this was happening, my comfort level in the water was increasing as well.
 
I just finished a 1.2 mile open water swim for a triathlon and felt great about it.  I couldn't have done it without John's help and all the great people in Milky Way Masters.  THANK YOU!
